Purchasing flight insurance seems to be a forgotten art. Yet inconveniences suffered from delayed flights and lost luggage remain the bane of many aircraft passengerâ€™s existence. International Services Inc. has just introduced three new insurance plans designed to protect airplane passengers when they take to the skies.
Online PR News – 07-February-2011 – – Though flying is the safest form of travel, it is still prudent to have flight insurance. Not only to protect loved ones in the unlikely event of an accident occurring, but also to ensure that lost baggage can have its value recouped. International Services Inc. has just introduced three different insurance plans to protect airplane passengers from injury, illness and theft. Basic insurance is essential because medical bills in the United States and other countries can be exceedingly high without the requisite coverage.
The Travelex Flight Plus plan available on International Services Inc.â€™s website, zFlightInsurance.com, offers coverage of up to $300,000. In fact, this can be brought up to $500,000 through the purchasing of extra insurance. This plan also provides 24/7 Accidental Death and Dismemberment coverage worth up to $10,000 as well as up to $25,000 worth of coverage for medical evacuation. Lost luggage is a common complaint amongst passengers and this plan covers lost or stolen baggage worth up to $1,000 and delayed baggage up to $100. Though there is no flight cancellation insurance on this plan, it is possible to buy flight only coverage worth up to $500,000.
The Travel Guard Flight Guard insurance plan must be purchased in advance of departure. Coverage lasts for up to 12 months with the cost ranging from $100,000 to $500,000. Like all insurance plans on International Services Inc., this plan is underwritten by a well-renowned company: The National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, PA. This insurance covers passengers for accidents which occur on a commercial aircraft. This flight insurance is a low cost option which prices ranging between $9 and $45 depending on the plan selected.
The Liaison Traveler plan has three coverage options for passengers leaving the country: 3 months, 6 months and 12 months. Interrupted trips are covered to the tune of $5,000 with accidental injury and emergency treatment coverage worth up to $25,000. The price of this plan varies from $78 to $173 depending on the plan selected. In total, those who select this plan will be eligible for up to $250,000 worth of coverage for emergency medical evaluation.
International Services Inc. is gaining new customers as news of their high standard of customer service becomes more frequent. Even those who did not purchase their insurance policy from the company will have their insurance questions answered. David from Arizona found this out: â€śI was stuck on a Saturday morning without an answer to a simple question about my insurance policy and even though my policy was not written through this company, they were very helpful.â€ť
The company recommends that all travelers purchase some form of flight insurance to at least cover the cost of missing luggage. It is a relatively small investment which could save customers a lot of trouble later on.
