Travel insurance may not be what anyone wants to think about when they're planning a trip, but for anyone that recently planned to travel through a UK airport, there were probably a few tense moments this week when they wish they had.
A travel crisis was averted earlier this week when British airport operator BAA settled with ground staff who were threatening to strike. A strike could have closed major UK airports, crippling both domestic travel in the UK and international flight routes.
So how can you protect your investment when your trip is threatened by something out of your control, like a transportation strike?
USI Affinity's Travel Insurance Select with Trip Cancellation and Interruption benefits can cover your trip cost when you cancel or interrupt a trip for covered reasons. With even our basic policy, the cost of your trip will be refunded in the event of a transportation strike.
