Understanding Covered Trip Delay Expenses 

Our plans encompass various expenses you might incur due to a trip delay: 

Unused Accommodations: We can cover the costs if you have prepaid for accommodations you cannot use due to the delay. 

Reasonable Expenses: We understand that delays can lead to unexpected costs. We may cover any reasonable expenses you incur due to the delay, such as meals, local transportation, lodging, and essential phone calls. 

Getting Back on Track: We will help you catch up with your trip by covering the cost of an Economy Fare from the point where your trip was interrupted to a destination where you can rejoin your planned journey. 

Return Journey:  If your delay results in you needing to return to your originally scheduled return destination, we can cover the cost of a one-way Economy Fare. 

Special Provision for Pets - (Exclusive to Platinum Protection Plan) 

We care about your furry companions, too. If you have entrusted your pet to a kennel during your trip and your delay prevents you from picking them up on the previously agreed day, we will step in. 

AXA Travel Protection will cover additional kennel fees up to the maximum benefit shown on your schedule of benefits section in your AXA Travel Protection plan.
