The largest Travel Insurance companies like Elvia/Mondial, Unigarant, Achmea, Europeesche have all publicly announced they WILL pay costs incurred like hotel/meals/communications while being stuck.
The funny thing is that the large Touroperators (big insurance sellers) and the Airlines (even bigger insurance sellers see; http://www.mondial-us.com/img/mag/301007-PR-KLM-Mondial-Assistance-trave
l-insurance-EN_tcm192-109232.pdf ) don’t mention it. In the KLM/Monidal press release KLM did mention though in 2007: This makes KLM.com an even more attractive place to do business with KLM. Moreover, travel insurance is an important source of ancillary revenues.” My question:
who is protecting who?
