What if my flight is delayed because of the earthquake?

Last Updated:

Short Answer

If you purchased a travel insurance policy before the earthquake occurred, you may be covered under your policy’s Travel Delay and Missed Connection benefits for a flight delay.

More Detail

Travel Delay and Missed Connection are triggered after a 3-12 hour delay and provide coverage for meals and accommodations during the delay, as well as unused, non-refundable trip expenses.

Missed Connection can also provide coverage for the cost of transportation to catch up to your scheduled trip if a delay causes you to miss your connection flight or cruise departure.

This information is time-sensitive and may vary based on the travel insurance policy. If you have questions about a specific policy, please contact us directly at 800-240-0369. Our customer service representatives are available 24/7 and are delighted to help.
