Cavalry reimburses client for airline strike and power failure

Perfect storm of trip delays

A Cavalry Travel Insurance client was attempting to return from a South American bird-watching tour when he found himself stranded in Argentina due to both a local airline strike and a power outage in his connecting airport in Atlanta.

The perfect storm of a power outage in the world’s busiest airport and a South American labor protest caused the client to spend three extra days in the Argentinian capital, which meant an additional $600 in hotel expenses.

As a comprehensive travel insurance policyholder with Cavalry, he submitted a claim for the hotel expenses and Cavalry reimbursed him the full amount.

Cavalry combines the best medevac insurance with travel insurance benefits such as trip cancellation, trip interruption, lost baggage, primary medical expense coverages, and more. Cavalry is powered by Redpoint Resolutions, a medical and travel risk security company owned and operated by special operations veterans and physicians.

Redpoint covers almost 10 million people worldwide and has evacuated clients from all seven continents.
