Trip insurance is not included in the cost of a ticket but it can be purchased as you precede though the booking process at online travel agencies and directly from travel agencies. The cost is collected at the time of ticket purchase but goes to the insurance provider. If you must use the insurance in the event of a covered trip interruption, you must call the insurance provider, not the website customer service agents or airline reservations. Trip insurance covers involuntary interruptions, weather and illness. Keep in mind that airlines offer a one-time waiver of change fees during weather events.
This means at the time your flight is cancelled or delayed so long that you are unable to arrive in time to accomplish the purpose of your travel; you can rebook for a later date up to one year from the original date of purchase without paying a change fee.
If you do not know when you want to travel again, you may have to pay the change fee when you rebook. Trip insurance would reimburse the change fee. In the case of illness, the insurance provider will expect documentation showing the reason you were unable to travel.
Trip insurance does not cover voluntary changes. If something comes up that causes you to delay or cancel your trip, you are on your own for the change fee. Now you have paid both insurance and a change fee.
Seat assignments are the most emotionally volatile aspect of the air reservation process. From King Arthur’s Round Table to Archie Bunker’s favourite recliner, has always been a matter of utmost importance to the human race. Getting the perfect seat on an airplane is no different.
Fliers with tight connections want seats near the front for quick egress. People with long legs require exit rows or bulkhead seats. Children must sit with their parents. Travellers with mobility limitations may need to sit near exits or lavatories. Some people refuse to sit over the wing because it blocks their view of the ground. Some people prefer to sit over the wing so they cannot see the distance to the ground. The middle seat is universally shunned.
Airlines do not reserve seats; they accept requests for specific seats. In most cases, your boarding pass will reflect the seat you chose, especially if you requested the seat from the airline’s own website. However, seats are subject to change, usually when a different type of aircraft is substituted for the one you booked. If you find that your carefully selected seat is not available to you, your only recourse is to ask the new tenant to swap with you.
This happened to a top level frequent flier who travelled on business at company expense and bought tickets for his wife and child on a separate reservation. He carefully chose seats together for both reservations. However, after he booked the trips the airline changed the flight to a smaller aircraft, reducing the number of seats by twenty. Changing the type of aircraft is called a ‘change of gauge’. For further information you may get in touch with experts at Ryanair contact number.
