There’s an intriguing new kind of travel insurance being offered by Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection. AirCare is the first product in its new travel-insurance line designed for travelers, travel agencies, tour operators, and travel suppliers, and it’s the first low-cost fixed-benefit flight-protection coverage available up to one hour before flight departure.

Here’s how it works: Coverage is priced at $25 per trip and pays $1,000 to travelers for tarmac delays of more than two hours; $1,000 if a traveler experiences lost or stolen luggage; $500 if a flight delay causes a traveler to miss a connecting flight; $500 for luggage delayed more than 12 hours; and $50 if a traveler experiences more than a two-hour flight delay. Take out a policy and it might be the first time you’ll pray for a delayed flight! Here’s more on the coverage from NBC News.

    I was so excited about this until I read that it’s only for domestic flights – sure wish it covered international too!

    Hmm, quite interesting. You know, I never really bother with insurance. But boy, sometimes do I regret it. Take the last trip for instance.. A simple flu, turns into a chest infection. I also had salmonella poisoining, which was not pretty OR cheap with hospital costs. This could be useful. Thanks Johnny.
