What does the Travel Delay benefit in travel insurance cover?

Published by Chris Harvey December 2, 2008

Travel Delay provides benefits to help you cover the cost of any additional unplanned accommodations and traveling expenses that you might incur if your trip is delayed for a covered reason.  Travel Delay covered reasons typically include being delayed by a documented traffic accident en route to departure, lost or stolen passports or travel documents, hijack, quarantine, unannounced strikes, and natural disasters. Benefits usually pay a daily maximum up the total amount listed in the travel insurance policy.
