Help! Our Team’s NY to Egypt Flight Was Cancelled

My flight was what??“We have group travel medical coverage and we just found out that our flight from New York to Cairo was cancelled.  Do we have coverage for trip interruption or missed connections?”.  This is what I was recently asked by a church missions director.  Unfortunately the answer was “no”.  Had the question been “Do you have a plan that would cover us in case our flight gets cancelled” the answer would have been “yes”!

Just this week El Al airlines left passengers stranded due to a strike – check out this article:  El Al Strike Upends Travel Plans .  Had those passengers had coverage for trip interruption their additional costs would have been covered.
