Balloon ride over Myanmar also sinks into a loss

Balloons over Bagan, Myanmar

While on an exotic tour of Southeast Asia, a Cavalry Travel insurance client had to cut her trip short due to flooding in one of the destinations.

She was due to visit the ancient coastal trading port of Hội An, Vietnam, but Typhoon Damrey had just hammered the canal-lined city with days of heavy rain. The flood gates holding the waters of overburdened reservoirs upstream had to be opened, and the thoroughfares became impassable.

Her tour operator canceled the visit, and consequently she had to alter her itinerary. As a result, the Cavalry client also missed a spectacular hot air balloon ride over the thousand-year-old temples of Bagan, Myanmar, with a separate company.

Her tour operators reimbursed her for portions of the canceled events, and she also incurred added flight costs and an extra night in a $400 hotel room. In all, her losses totaled $1,400 for which she submitted a claim with her comprehensive travel insurance policy.

Cavalry reimbursed her for 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.
