A majority of travelers have direct experience of winter weather throwing a wrench in their travel plans, which sets them up as ideal candidates for purchasing travel insurance. 56 percent of travelers reported experiencing a trip delay or cancellation due to inclement winter weather, according to “Winter Travel Fast Facts” released by TripAdvisor.
When offering travel insurance to clients we suggest using anecdotes to express what could happen to disrupt a trip and how a CSA Travel Protection plan can help in those situations. But, with a majority of winter travelers having experienced a delay or cancellation of their trip first-hand, they’re probably already well aware of the potential impact of unexpected winter weather on their vacation.
What could happen?
Winter is flu and cold season: Guests or their family members could become sick or injured and they could be unable to make the trip or must return home early.
Adverse Weather: A guest’s flight is canceled or roads are closed due to adverse weather such as a snowstorm.
