Travel insurance policies include a list of "hazards" that are covered if they cause a delay during your trip. If you miss your flight for a reason that is not listed, such as a lengthy security wait, it will not be covered.
When am I covered for a missed flight?
The covered reasons for missing a flight vary by policy but may include:
- Lost or stolen passport, travel documents, or money
- Traffic accident
- Strike or riot
- Terrorism or hijacking
- Natural disaster
- Road closure due to severe weather or documented weather condition that prevents you from getting to the airport
"Travel delays are one of the most common claims during the holidays," said Squaremouth spokesperson Rachael Taft. "Travel insurance can cover your expenses and help you get on with your trip in many of these situations, but even insured travelers need to plan ahead for longer security lines."
