We purchased a Travel Guard policy a week before our trip because we sensed a threat of a late season snow storm in May. Sure enough, a blizzard hit the Midwest on May 1!
But, to our surprise, our plane on its way to our origination airport had a mechanical failure and a significant delay that prevented us from making our connection, and with the backlog of cancelled flights and passengers from the weather, they were unable to re-accommodate us to our destination for 3 days. So the trip was a total loss! Travel Guard was there and helped ensure that our claim was properly filed and complete. Three weeks later, a check arrived in the mail for the entire amount of our trip! We have already called several family and friends and said that a Travel Guard policy is a must for any trip. Thank you for being there to help cover our losses!
