    Travel insurance recommendation

    Hi there,
    my sis in law is travelling on the 9th to the far east,
    does anyone have any recommendation for travel insurance which can also provide something for example if the volcano goes off again and flight have been cancelled.

    Thanks in advance

    May be worth checking with your airline

    I have an annual policy with Direct Travel Insurance.
    After the volcano ash palaver I received an email from them :

    Dear Mrs -----We are pleased to confirm that Direct Travel Insurance will … Dear Mrs -----We are pleased to confirm that Direct Travel Insurance will pay valid claims from customers that are either stranded abroad or cannot travel due to the volcanic ash.Many travel insurance policies do not cover such situations but, in light of these extraordinary circumstances, we are treating this as an adverse weather event. This means that you can submit a claim for Delayed departure, Abandonment or Missed departure if you have been affected.What should I do if my travel plans have been affected?If your flight has been cancelled or delayed, whether you are in the UK or abroad, in the first instance please contact your airline and/or travel company.You can submit a claim under your Direct Travel Insurance policy for costs such as accommodation and transport that cannot be recovered from another source such as the airlines, tour operators, hotels etcPlease note that the policy limits and conditions specified in your policy document will apply, and will depend on the level of cover you purchased.If you are stranded abroad due to travel disruption, Direct Travel Insurance will automatically extend your policy period until you return home, at no extra cost, for single trip policyholders.If you need to submit a claim, please ensure that you follow the standard claims procedure and provide all relevant supporting documentation.
