Travel Insured Launches New Airline Ticket Protector

by User Not Found | Mar 24, 2009

Travel Insured International ( has strengthened protection for families and business travelers for whom airline tickets are the primary trip expense by launching a new, stronger Airline Ticket Protector plan. It is available for purchase online only starting Monday, March 23, 2009. The plan dramatically expands program coverage, while introducing new benefits and value-added options not previously available in the airline product. Affordable base prices for the plan begin at $16 per passenger.

The new Airline Ticket Protector will appeal to leisure travelers flying to visit friends and relatives, business travelers for whom land components may be hosted but airline tickets are an out-of-pocket expense, or independent vacationers for whom airline tickets are prepaid but land arrangements are flexible and paid during travel.

The new Airline Ticket Protector increases available coverage on Trip Cancellation or Trip Interruption to ticket costs valued up to $3,500, a generous upgrade from the $1,000 maximum ticket price covered under the old plan. Travelers may qualify for a waiver of pre-existing medical conditions if the plan is purchased within 14 days of the initial trip deposit. Trip Delay coverage is increased to a maximum $500 with no daily limit compared to the $100 limit under the previous plan, and Baggage Delay coverage has been doubled in the new plan to a $200 maximum compared to $100 in the previous one.

New coverage included in the New Airline Ticket Protector are a maximum $500 Missed Connection benefit and $1,000 in Lost Baggage & Personal Effects coverage.

Travelers in need of more comprehensive coverage can take advantage of new value-added options in the new Airline Trip Protector plan:

  • Cancel For Any Reason Option: Travelers within 14 days of their initial trip deposit can purchase this option, available for a 50% premium supplement and paying potential benefits of up to 75% of total trip cost in a cash refund.

  • Flight Accident Option: Available for up to $1 million coverage and priced from $8 to $50 per person depending on the benefit level selected.

  • Combined Emergency Medical Option: $50,000 in Emergency Medical Expense with $250,000 in Emergency MedEvac coverage. Priced at $25 per person.

  • Car rental collision damage waiver (CDW) Option: $7 per day price is charged only to the primary traveler named on the Airline Ticket Protector plan.

All plan options must be indicated and paid for on the Airline Ticket Protector application. When selected, the Flight Accident, the Emergency Medical, and the Cancel For Any Reason Option will be applied to all travelers on the same application.

Insurance benefits in the plans are subject to limitations and exclusions, including an exclusion for pre‑existing conditions.
