Italy travel insurance FAQs.

Can travel insurance cover my flight cancellation due to an airline strike in Italy?

Yes, cover is available under your TID policy for the cost of rearranging your trip as a result of corporate takeover or strike that results in your flights being cancelled. To be covered, you must have purchased your policy before the event was known.
