Air Travel Insurance
>> Air Travel Insurance That's Got A Clue!
From a Travel Agents Diary:
'A woman called and said, 'I need to fly to Pepsi-cola on one of those computer planes.' I asked if she meant to fly to Pensacola on a commuter plane. She said, 'Yeah, whatever.'
A client called in inquiring about a package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info, she asked, 'Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii?'
Naturally, from Australia, 99.9% of people fly out - no underwater trains here - so, unless you're one of the .1 percenters, you'll need air travel insurance when you head off overseas.
If your worldwide travel will be taking you on some of the more out of the way international airlines you may feel it's going to be the best part of your holidays - after all, most airlines in Australia won't fly with goats and chooks in with the passengers. But these airlines do come with an element of risk and you'd be FUBB if you didn't have adequate insurance and emergency assistance cover if anything went wrong.
A bit of uncertainly can be fun and give you great stories to tell your friends when you get back. But the reality is that uncertainty gone very wrong can completely wreck your trip if it means major expenses that totally blow the budget.
