“Our flight was delayed by three hours and since BH knew our itinerary they alerted us via email and automatically issued check for delay coverage which arrived shortly after we returned home - we did not need to request/file a claim. We were impressed!”

Air Travel Doesn’t Always Go As Planned – You Should Consider Flight Travel Insurance.

Flying is safer than ever – but things can still happen when you fly. Flight travel insurance from Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection can safeguard you when: 

  • Storms or blizzards cancel flights
  • Unexpected flight delays cause you to miss a connection
  • Equipment failure causes a lengthy tarmac delay
  • A flight diversion forces you to arrive at a different airport                                    

The bad news: Most travel insurance won’t pay you for your inconvenience in cases like these. You’re on your own.

Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection Can Protect Your Flights Two Ways.

We actually have two ways for you to insure your flights.

1. AirCare® pays fixed benefits for common flight inconveniences.

2. ExactCare Extra® has a unique combination of benefits for common flight inconveniences bundled with comprehensive travel insurance.

Whether you’re hopping state-to-state or flying around the world, we can protect most flights – easily, quickly, and affordably. Here’s how we can cover you when flight mishaps strike:



ExactCare Extra®


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 for the inconvenience – and we’ll pay fast into an account you specify.



Flight Cancellation Insurance

With our travel insurance for flight cancellation, we track your flights so you usually don’t even have to file a claim. We can file it for you, and pay you fast, into a specified account.


Not Covered

Missed Connection Protection

If flight delays cause you to miss a connecting flight, our missed connection protection can pay you for the inconvenience – and can pay your claim in minutes*.



Flight Disruption AND Diversion Insurance

If your arriving airport diverts you to a different airport due to weather, air traffic or other covered circumstances, we’ll not only pay you for your inconvenience – we’ll help you make alternative travel arrangements.


Not Covered

Late Night Flight Delay Protection

If a day filled with flight delays pushes the time you arrive at your hotel past 2 a.m. the morning after you were scheduled to arrive, we’ll pay you $100 for the inconvenience.


Not Covered

Flight Medical Insurance

The emergency medical insurance in ExactCare Extra can cover you when you fly – and on the rest of your trip as well.

Not Covered

Up to $50,000/person; acts as primary and coverages for pre-existing conditions if purchased within 15 days of initial trip payment

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

We can automatically detect when you’ve experienced a covered tarmac delay, file your claim, and pay you – and typically you don’t have to do anything!



24/7 Emergency Travel Assistance

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



Get Flight Insurance Fast … Get Paid Fast.

In a few minutes you can protect your flights with AirCare ... or protect your flights, your travel health, and all your prepaid, nonrefundable travel expenses with ExactCare Extra.

And with both plans, you could get paid for a flight-related claim before you even know there’s a problem.

The moment your flight is delayed, we can automatically create a claim, and deposit the claim payment into your account. Typically with no paper claim forms, no phone calls: It's done automatically – and we’ll email you when we’re done!

We also let you choose how fast you want to be paid:

  • In minutes, with PayPal
  • In less than 24 hours, with Electronic Funds Transfer
  • In a week or so, with a paper check
