Definition: Your baggage is delayed by a common carrier, hotel or tour operator for 24
hours or more. Travel insurance can reimburse you for reasonable essential items up to the specific policy’s limit until your baggage arrives.
Example: It’s a good thing you arrived at your big quarterly meeting a day early to prepare. Because your luggage didn’t. When you made your connection in Chicago to Madison, Wisconsin, your luggage was sent to Atlanta. At least that’s what the airline office told you several hours after filing a claim. And while it’s going to take about 36 hours to reunite with your clothes, toiletries and more, you do have time to go shopping for a toothbrush and new duds. And you’ll still have the chance to review the notes for your big speech to shareholders, minty-fresh breath and all.
