Cancellation of a journey means that a departure on a journey is prevented altogether. The cancellation may be covered, if the reason for cancellation is your or your next of kin’s sudden and unexpected illness, injury or death or an authority regulation to avoid unnecessary or all travel to the travel destination. Cancellation costs may be covered up to a certain sum.
Cancel the trip without delay and first claim compensation from the tour or transport operator, and only then from the insurance company. The insurance can cover the part that the tour or transport operator does not cover. After you have received compensation from the tour or transport operator, please report a claim to us.
The insurance does not cover the cancelled flight ticket. When the airline company cancels the flight they are obliged to offer you a new departure, and if this is not possible, they should offer you a refund.
When a flight is delayed it is the airline company´s responsibility to re-book you on a later flight or offer you a refund. The insurance may include coverage for delayed departure which means you can get some reimbursement if the delay exceeds four hours. The policy letter states the maximum sum insured.
