Is It Worth Buying Trip Insurance For a Domestic Flight (in the USA)? The answer depends on what kind of a trip are you taking:
|Examples of why You Should or Should Not get Trip Cancellation Travel Insurance for your Domestic Flight:|
|Your flight is part of a larger trip that has more prepaid trip costs. ie – Flying en route to a cruise, tour or lodging (or any combination or these).||Yes, get travel insurance. You don’t want to lose all that money if you are forced to cancel or interrupt your trip. And, if you need pre-existing medical conditions coverage most plans require you to include this cost.|
|You made a mistake and bought the wrong plane ticket. You don’t want to pay the change fee to change the travel dates.||No, don’t get travel insurance. Your mistake is not covered.|
|You bought a plane ticket and now there’s some not normally covered potential reason you will cancel at least 2 days before your departure date.||Yes. Get a policy with Cancel For Any Reason. If you change your mind, you’re afraid to travel, you just don’t want to go, etc. You’ll only get 75% of your money back, but it’s better than nothing.|
|You bought a plane ticket in the last few days and now there’s bad weather forecast. You want someone else to pay your extra costs if your flight is cancelled or delayed.||No, don’t get travel insurance. You won’t be covered. Read this to see what I mean: Do Callers Think We Were Born Yesterday?|
|You bought a plane ticket to a destination you will never go back to if you cancelled your trip for not normally covered reason.||Yes. Get a policy with Cancel For Any Reason. If you don’t want the credit from the airline to have to reuse within a year. You’ll only get 75% of your money back, but it’s better than nothing.|
