Missed Connection Benefits

In travel, unexpected events can throw even the best-laid plans off course. That is where AXA Travel Protection comes into play, offering coverage for travelers facing disruptions to their itineraries.  

Below is a breakdown of the key points to understand about this coverage 

What is Missed Connection coverage?

Missed Connection benefit offers coverage for travelers who miss their connecting flight or transportation due to an unforeseen event, such as inclement weather, mechanical issues, or other unexpected events.

Additional Transportation Expenses: If your flight delay prevents you from catching up with your cruise or tour, an AXA Travel Protection plan can cover the expenses needed to reach your intended destination economically. 

Reasonable Expenses: Recognizing the inconveniences you might face during the delay; AXA Travel Protection may reimburse you for reasonable expenses like meals and accommodations up to a daily limit. 

Refund for Unused Portion: If you have made pre-paid nonrefundable payments or deposits for parts of your trip that you could not utilize due to the delay, AXA Travel Protection can provide a refund for those unused portions. 

Secondary Coverage: It is important to note that this travel insurance coverage is secondary to any compensation you might receive from the airline. In other words, if the airline offers you compensation for the delay, that takes precedence over what AXA offers. 

Exclusions: However, not all scenarios are covered under this policy. Specifically, individuals who could have realistically made their scheduled departures but opted to cancel their trip due to inclement weather that has not yet been deemed severe weather by the common carrier. This aims to prevent misuse of the insurance by those who had the opportunity to depart on time.
