Hong Kong Airport Flooded By Protesters – Travel Insurance Warning

Hong Kong Airport Flooded By Protesters – Travel Insurance Warning

Protests in Hong Kong have spilled over into the international airport — grounding flights, stranding travelers, and nearly halting one of the largest air travel hubs in Asia. In response, InsureMyTrip urges affected travelers to review their travel insurance policy and contact a licensed travel insurance agent for further assistance.

For those who purchased a travel insurance policy prior to the airport protest, travel insurance may apply for the following scenarios:   

Protest causes a missed connection: some plans may cover a traveler in the event he or she misses a cruise or tour departure because an arrival at their destination is delayed for a set number of hours, typically more than three hours.

Protest causes a trip cancellation: some plans may cover a traveler in the event a covered delay (related to the protests) causes he or she to miss 50% or more of a trip.

Protest causes a flight delay: some plans may cover a traveler in the event protests force a flight to be delayed, for a certain number of hours. This benefit would also possibly cover accommodations, food, and other necessities.

No longer want to go on a trip due to the protest: for those who obtained a policy that included optional Cancel for Any Reason, benefits may apply.

Want to leave a trip early due to the protest: for those who obtained a policy that included Interruption for Any Reason, benefits may apply.
