    Honeymoon travel insurance - Flying from Dublin, multiple flights 15th Mar 17 at 1:53 PM
    Hi All, Getting married in 3 weeks time and the honeymoon is booked for New York and Vegas.


    No idea how to go about booking travel insurance for this. We live in Northern Ireland (UK) and the flight will be from Dublin in Southern Ireland. I've read travel insurance companies don't cover if not flying out of the UK.


    My 2nd question is what do we need to do to be covered for all legs of the trip (4 flights in total) incase of cancellations or missing our connecting flight? (There's a 2 hour turnaround Vegas to Chicago and then Chicago back to the Dublin)

    You need to be covered from the start of your trip until the end of it. With regards to what they cover then you need to read the individual policies.

    Unless you've only just booked your trip your insurance should have already been sorted the moment you paid out any money you couldn't afford to lose. If you had had to cancel between booking and now you would have lost everything.

    Cover for the various legs of your trip is essentially provided by the airlines: if you have to change 'planes in Chicago to get home but your flight from LV to Chicago is delayed so you miss the flight home then the airline will just put you on the next suitable departure. So long, that is, as you have a through ticket (and if you try doing this on separate tickets then that risk is not insurable).

    That's good to hear then. 3 of the 4 flights are flying with United and we have one reference number for expedia. The final flight back from Chicago to Ireland does have a 'UAxxxx' flight code and shows in the United phone app like the others, but it is actually operated by Aer Lingus. (So I hope this would be covered!)


    So if I purchase a standard one trip insurance policy, I don't need to be concerned about the 4 flights and travelling from New York to Vegas?
