As a savvy traveler, you're well aware that a journey doesn't always go as smoothly as planned. Delays can happen for a multitude of reasons – weather disruptions, technical glitches, or even unforeseen circumstances. When these delays occur at your departure point in South Africa, it's reassuring to know that Allianz Travel Insurance has your back. In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the ins and outs of Allianz Travel Insurance coverage for delayed departures in South Africa.
If you're ready to learn more about Allianz Travel Insurance's coverage for delayed departures, be sure to read the terms and conditions carefully. If you have any questions or would like to receive more information, don't hesitate to get in touch with us.
According to Allianz Travel Insurance, a delayed departure occurs when your trip is delayed from its original scheduled departure time, regardless of whether you are leaving South Africa or returning to South Africa.
For example, if you are travelling from Johannesburg to New York with a connecting flight to Amsterdam, and your flight from Johannesburg to Amsterdam is delayed, you would be covered by Allianz's delayed departure coverage. However, if your flight from Amsterdam to New York is delayed, you would not be covered.
It is important to note that the delay must be a result of a covered reason included in our Terms and Conditions.
Now that we understand what a departure point is let's delve into the temporal aspect of coverage. Allianz Travel Insurance covers delayed departures when the delay extends beyond 6 hours. This means that if your flight is delayed for 6 hours or more, you may be eligible to make a claim. While it's true that many travelers experience shorter delays, Allianz focuses its coverage on more significant disruptions to your travel plans.
