Each day millions of travelers are navigating airports, filing through security lines and hoping to board their flight seamlessly. However, not every trip goes as planned. Leading travel insurance comparison site, Squaremouth, reviews three common air travel nightmares that travel insurance doesn’t cover.
The Neverending Security Line
While travelers may aim to arrive early, sometimes security lines can be long, especially during holidays and peak travel times. Missing a flight because of a long security line is not covered by travel insurance.
What can be covered: If a traveler misses their flight due to a traffic accident on the way to the airport there may be travel insurance coverage on some policies. Travel insurance providers will require official documentation of the accident during the claims process.
The Overbooked Flight
Often unbeknown to travelers, airlines overbook flights on a regular basis. If an airline ‘bumps’ a traveler from a flight because it’s full, they will often provide a voucher. However, a voucher for future travel doesn’t always help if a traveler has a connecting flight or cruise that they will miss. Any penalties incurred as a result of being bumped from an overbooked flight aren’t covered by travel insurance.
