Missed departure is normally covered by a travel insurance policy, but cover can vary.
It usually provides cover if you fail to arrive in time to board pre-booked international transport (for both outbound and inbound journeys). However, you must always make sure you allow enough time to arrive at your departure point.
Cover is normally provided if you miss the departure due to:
- Failure of public transport
- An accident or breakdown on a public road
- Strike or industrial action
Please check the policy wording to confirm what is covered, the level of compensation and the evidence required to claim.
