Travel Insurance – Drone Disruption
Following the Gatwick incident last week and the drone disruption to flights, it is advisable to check your Travel Insurance policy. If you have plans to travel and have yet to purchase a policy, you should look at a policy that will provide you with the correct cover.
When the illegal drones are causing delays and even cancellations of flights, it is a good idea to check with the Airline and find out their policy. They have certain responsibility under the law.
For additional costs that might be incurred due to to delays or cancellations, you should make sure that you have a Travel Insurance policy that will provide you with the cover you might need. This could be items such as missed accommodation or car car hire overseas. Here are some examples of cover you should look for:
The departure of your international flight, international train or sailing is delayed for more than 12 hours from its scheduled departure time from your international departure point.
Abandonment of Trip
After 24 hours of delay at the Airport and after you have check in for your flight on your outbound journey from your home country you abandon the trip.
