  • Booking Through a Third-Party? Protect Yourself with Travel Insurance

    Filed Under: Blogging

A recent question and answer column on CNN.com detailed the troubling scenario of a customer who was having trouble getting a refund for a cancelled flight after booking their travel through an online travel agency. The travel expert offered explanations as to why this was happening, but the simplest solution to this problem is to buy travel insurance.

The column theorized that the delay was occurring because the airline was being slower in paying back the travel agency than it might have been in paying you back directly. However, travel insurance offers your safest solution overall in the event that you are faced with cancelled flights, delays, or missed connections.

With a small investment, you will be able to be reimbursed quickly for the costs associated with flight scheduling issues, including buying new flights and booking new travel accommodations. So your investment will be protected and recovered no matter how long the airlines and travel agencies take to process refunds.

The cost of flying is constantly increasing as airlines struggle financially. One simple cancelled flight can be a costly loss, even if it is a temporary one. No one wants to be without the few hundred dollars they are owed any longer than they have to be. Take precautions against these sorts of scenarios by purchasing an affordable travel insurance plan.
