Floods Cause Travel Chaos’...will my Travel Insurance Policy cover me?

Floods and delays on the roads, and at airports, have caused misery and chaos for thousands of holiday makers getting away for the first week of the school summer holidays. So are you covered if you take out a travel insurance policy?

Under most travel insurance policies, insurers will respond to claims for Delay and Abandonment as well as Missed Departure. Some insurers, such as, provide cover for events beyond your control so if you have been delayed by the floods then the travel insurance will cover you for additional accommodation and travel expenses incurred to get you to your destination, so your holiday is not lost. Don’t forget to obtain a written report from the airline confirming the delay and a report from the police or breakdown service if your vehicle has been held up in the floods.

So, after the misery of rain soaked Britain, you will still be able to enjoy the holiday you have planned, albeit a little late and do spare a thought for those less fortunate back home as you are soaking up that Mediterranean sun.
