What if my flight is delayed?

Last Updated:

In the event your flight is rerouted or delayed to avoid the potentially dangerous Sinai region in Egypt, insurance policies with the Travel Delay benefit may provide coverage.

Some policies provide travelers with this coverage who are unexpectedly delayed by their common carrier, regardless of the reason, as long as they are delayed for a specified number of hours.

Other policies require the cause of the delay to be a covered reason under your policies Trip Cancellation or Trip Interruption coverage, so we recommend looking at your policies details to determine if this is included in your coverage.

This benefit provides reimbursement for meals, lodging, and local transportation while you are delayed by your airline.
