Travel Insurance Takes The Sting Out of Problematic Weather and Airline Crowding

Warwick, RI, July 25, 2006— With a  volatile thunderstorm season causing the highest level of flight delays in years, and packed-to-capacity planes driving up average wait times at airport security check points, the term “lazy days of summer” has taken on an entirely new meaning.  But don’t panic.  If “on time” arrival is becoming a part of your past, remember, comprehensive travel insurance can protect your future journeys against these types of risks.

“Purchasing travel insurance has become second nature to many seasoned travelers; but now even occasional trekkers are recognizing its value and benefits,” observes Peter Evans, Executive Vice President of  “Whether you’re going on a family sightseeing vacation or a routine business trip, travel insurance can protect against unforeseen events that may affect your journey.”

“Trip Cancellation Package Policies offer the broadest protection in these circumstances — including coverage for trip cancellation, interruption, baggage, travel delay, and medical and emergency evacuation — and can be used for cruises, tours, flights, and vacation rentals.  With concerns about travel delays so much at the forefront of travelers minds today, it’s also important to know that these package policies provide reimbursement for hotel accommodations, meals, and transportation caused by weather-related delays and cancellations,” Evans explains.

“Though we hope never to use or need it, travel insurance can provide a tremendous amount of security and peace of mind for a small fraction of the cost of a trip.” To learn more about the protection plans that best suit your travel needs, visit on-line or call (800) 487-4722 to speak with one of InsureMyTrip’s expert travel insurance professionals.
