  • Guard Against British Airways Strike with Trip Cancellation Insurance

British Airways cabin crew have officially gone on strike, leaving tourists around the world in a difficult situation. If you have trip cancellation insurance, you will be able to cancel British Airways flights you have already booked without losing your entire investment.

The British Airways employees went on strike this past weekend and announced plans to do so March 27-30 as well. This is leading to cancellation for many flights and status questions for many others.

That leaves passengers stuck with very expensive airfare for this week that they have already booked far in advance. Obviously no one wants to lose the significant amount of money they have made in purchasing international airline tickets, and that is where trip cancellation insurance comes in handy. Consumers can buy it in advance of their trip and then should any number of issues (either related o your personal or business life, or in this case a factor beyond your control such as an airline problem or safety concern) arise, you can cancel your trip.

You will receive a refund for most of your initial purchase, so you can then book a new flight on another airline without having paid double the price for a single trip. Trip cancellation insurance even can be applied to non-refundable flights! In an uncertain time when travel concerns and inconveniences are at an all-time high for many different reasons, it is important to protect the hundreds or thousands of dollars you spend on international travel.
