Missed Connection Coverage

Some policies have specific benefits for missing a cruise or tour while others might provide coverage within their trip interruption coverage.

Missed Connection

This benefit provides coverage if you miss a connection on your arrival to your destination due to "covered reason" on your policy. These covered reasons are different than those found under the trip cancellation or trip interruption coverages.  They may include some or all of the reasons listed below:

  • any delay of a Common Carrier (the delay must be certified by the Common Carrier),
  • a documented weather condition preventing You from getting to the point of departure,
  • quarantine,
  • hijacking,
  • Strike,
  • natural disaster,
  • terrorism, 
  • riot

Coverage is usually based on a certain delay time being met, this can be anywhere from 3 to 12 hours (lower the time limit, the better for you).   Just because a plan doesn't have a missed connection benefit doesn't mean that missing your tour or cruise isn't covered - it just might be covered under the trip interruption coverage

Please note that most plans will also require that you meet the minimum scheduled connecting times for this benefit to take effect.

FAQ's

Question:  Does missed connection coverage protect me if I miss my tour or cruise for any reason?

Answer:  No, it only protects you if you miss your tour or cruise for one of the reasons specified in the coverage.  Some plans limit coverage only to adverse weather causing your flight to be delayed while other plans include strikes and any other carrier caused delays.

Question:  I'm not going on either a cruise or a tour.  Will missed connection cover me if I miss a connecting flight?

Answer:  No, missed connection is limited to only those connections listed in the specific plan.  Most plans cover missed connection to a cruise and some plans also cover missed connections with a tour.
