What Does Travel Insurance Typically Cover?

Travel insurance often includes coverage for missed flights and missed connections, but this depends on the specific policy and the reason for missing the flight. Coverage usually applies in situations beyond your control, such as:

  1. Severe Weather: If bad weather prevents you from reaching the airport.
  2. Medical Emergencies: If you or a traveling companion become unexpectedly ill.
  3. Traffic Accidents: If you’re involved in a traffic accident en route to the airport.
  4. Airport or Airline Issues: Delays caused by the airline or airport, like security delays.

Situations Not Typically Covered

Understanding what is not covered is just as crucial:

  1. Oversleeping or Personal Delays: Missing your flight due to personal reasons, such as oversleeping, is not covered. Travel insurance is designed to protect you from uncontrollable events, not personal oversights.
  2. Pre-Existing Conditions: If the reason for missing your flight is related to a pre-existing medical condition not covered by the policy, you won’t be reimbursed. Knowing the specifics of your policy helps you prepare adequately.
  3. Last-Minute Cancellations: Deciding not to travel for personal reasons not listed in the policy means you won’t be covered. Clear understanding and planning can prevent such issues.
