Do you need travel delay cover?

No one can predict the future, but we can make sure we are prepared if the unexpected does happen, so we include travel delay cover in all of our TravelCare policies. We think it’s vital.

What is the true cost of getting stranded overseas?

Delays frequently strand holidaymakers overseas and can result in travellers missing either part or all of their trip. The cost of being delayed can be considerable, as was the case with Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano back in 2010. Thousands of travellers were stranded overseas and many more were prevented from traveling in the first place.

Each year we see thousands of claims relating to delayed or interrupted travel plans so we created this simple infographic to highlight some of the risks and compare the level of cover offered by travel insurers.
