Flight Delays on the Rise, but Travel Protection with Flight Insurance Can Help

In 2014 more flights were delayed, a greater number of passengers were involuntarily bumped from their flights, and the rate of lost, stolen or delayed bags increased 13 percent from the previous year, according to the Airline Quality Rating 2015 report conducted by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Additionally, consumer complaints to the U.S. Department of Transportation about airlines rose 22 percent in 2014.

These types of interrupting events can affect your guests and even impact your business if guests are unable to make it to the rental as scheduled. But, there’s a simple solution. You can offer your customers CSA Travel Protection’s Guest Protect plan which can help take some of the pressure of traveling off their shoulders and is a way to increase revenue to your bottom line.

Reservation cancellations can disrupt your inventory flow and upset guests if they lose their non-refundable payments. The Guest Protect plan can help reinforce your cancellation policy, and, since you offer them the travel insurance plan, you can help save the day!

CSA Travel Protection’s Guest Protect plan includes Baggage, Travel Delay, Trip Interruption and other coverages which could reimburse your insured guests for certain travel-impacting events like those the Airline Quality Rating report suggests are on the rise. More than ever, travelers are in need of a way to protect their trip costs and hedge against unexpected and potentially expensive mishaps that can be covered by travel insurance.

“You handled our claim with such kindness. And you settled it so quickly.  We couldn’t be happier. Sometimes insurance companies get a bad rap. You can be sure we will recommend that our friends always get their trips insured with you. Thank you again.”
