What is Missed Connection?

Missed Connection can reimburse the additional costs for a traveler to catch up to their trip if they miss their departure for a covered reason.

To be covered by the Missed Connection benefit, a traveler must experience a common carrier delay that lasts a specified amount of time, typically 3, 6, or 12 hours. The most common covered reasons under this benefit are inclement weather or a mechanical breakdown of a common carrier.

Certain policies with Missed Connection coverage only provide reimbursement if a traveler needs to catch up to a cruise or tour. These policies will specifically state “Cruise only” or “Cruise and tour only”.

Please be aware that coverage and eligibility requirements for this benefit differ by policy. The tables below show the providers that offer Missed Connection coverage.
