Give Yourself the Gift of Travel Insurance this Holiday Season


As we are approaching our second holiday season amidst our new post-pandemic world, many of us find ourselves still adjusting to this new “normal”. Every day seems to hold new uncertainties and travel is no exception. Traveling is exciting, but there are risks associated with every trip. Investing in a travel insurance policy can help put your mind at ease so you can relax and enjoy the journey this holiday season.


Flight Delays and Cancellations are Becoming More and More Common


In April alone, there were over 5,000 consumer complaints filed with the Department of Transportation. That’s a lot, more than four times the number of complaints filed in April of 2019 before the pandemic! There are many reasons for this increase in complaints including flight delays and cancellations.

While some flight delays and cancellations can be blamed on the airline (crew problems, maintenance issues, baggage loading, etc.), other factors can also lead to these inconveniences that are out of the airline’s control (extreme weather conditions, security, air traffic control restrictions, etc.). Check out Sky Refund’s list of the 10 most common reasons for flight delays here. And to add to that, more than 10,000 flights have been canceled in the United States so far this year alone.


Don’t Let These Inconveniences Burn a Hole in Your Pocket


The point here is that flights in recent times have proved to be unpredictable, and you may not want to leave the financial risks of an issue with your flight up to chance. Rather, consider investing in trip interruption insurance coverage. This coverage can help you recoup your losses and help reimburse you for prepaid, non-refundable, and unused expenses. You may also consider trip delay insurance which can help to cover things like accommodations, food, transport, and more as you wait out the delay.


What About Your Baggage?


According to data from the Air Travel Consumer Reports published by the Department of Transportation, more than 680,000 bags were mishandled in the first quarter of 2022. Everything you need for your trip is stored in your baggage: clothing, toiletries, electronics, jewelry, etc. Losing your personal items stored in your baggage can not only be a major inconvenience, but also a huge financial loss.

Consider investing in loss and delay of baggage coverage in your travel insurance policy. If your bags are delayed, this policy can reimburse you for essentials you have to purchase, like toiletries, clothes and more. If your bags are lost, the insurance company will help you try to track down your luggage, and if it can’t be found, they’ll reimburse you for the items.
