gidat1 said:It all depends on what is the cost of the insurance, who offers it and what is covered. In my FL post I mentioned that due to Wilma my exchange this week in to west palm beach resort was cancelled by RCI. They kept my $ 149.00. They told me that I should have bought the insurance. The cost was $ 25.00. The coverage was measly $ 149.00 exchange fee. That is 1 to 6 ratio. To me that is not worth it.

sultan_sfo said:My reading of the "Coverage" provided is that most plans cover only $500 per person for trip delays and that includes any air, hotels, and incidental expenses (meals, etc.). We were recently on a cruise (Oct. /06) that got delayed 6 hours but fortunately Delta did not charge us any extra for a later flight that had a few available seats which we were able to get. On our return, I have once again very carefully read the terms of the policies. I would definitely like to know whether your insurance reimburses you $1600. Thanks. /Sultan
Dave M said:Actually, trip interruption coverage from the major travel insurance companies (e.g., Access America, CSA and Travel Guard) typically starts at about $2,500 and goes up from there, depending on what policy is purchased. You can get coverage info at the link in Marion's post near the top of this thread.
