Some travel insurance plans cover your flights if you need to cancel, but most other travel insurance plans don’t pay fixed benefits for the common inconveniences associated with flying like AirCare does. The flight protection provided by Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection’s AirCare covers this crucial part of your vacation, safeguarding you when the unexpected occurs, like:

  • Storms or blizzards cancelling flights across the country strand you
  • Unexpected flight delays causing you to miss a connection
  • Equipment failure causing a lengthy tarmac delay 
  • A flight diversion forces you to arrive at a different airport!                                                             

Here’s how we can cover you when flight mishaps strike*: 

Flight delay insurance

If your flight is delayed the amount of time the policy states, we can file a claim on your behalf and pay you $50 for the inconvenience, and we’ll pay fast into an account you specify.

Flight cancellation insurance

Flight cancelled? We can track your flights so you don’t even have to file a claim. We can file it for you, and pay you $150 for the inconvenience, and we’ll pay fast into a specified account. 

Missed connection protection

Missed connections annually top travelers’ lists of biggest annoyances. If you miss your connection, we can pay you $100 for the inconvenience and can pay your claim in minutes*.

Flight diversion insurance

Your arriving airport is diverting traffic to a different airport due to weather, air traffic or other inconveniences?  We can pay you $150 for this inconvenience and help you get find alternative travel arrangements.

Late night delay coverage

A day filled with flight delays makes you arrive to your hotel after 2 am the morning after you were scheduled to arrive?  We’ll pay your $100 for this inconvenience so you can rest easier knowing you were compensated for this long day of travel.

Lost luggage coverage

Other travel insurance plans make you fill out lengthy forms to file a luggage claim. Typically all we need to pay your claim is a picture of your airline issued baggage loss form or police report.

Tarmac delay

Tarmac delays don’t happen often, but when they do they’re a major hassle and often trip up the rest of your travel that day. We can automatically detect when you’ve experienced a covered tarmac delay, file your claim, and pay you – and you don’t have to do anything!

24/7 emergency travel assistance

Assistance to help rebook your flights and make other travel arrangements – saving you time when others are scrambling. 

Be prepared for the unexpected. Choose the best flight insurance, from Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection.
