Travel Insurance that covers Natural Disasters??!

We're due to fly out to Greece from London Stanstead on Tuesday.

But after hearing about the volcanic ash striking again, I'm looking for travel insurance that will cover me in case of any delays caused by the this natural disaster.

Can anyone recommend any decent companies as I read how last year alot of companies didn't pay out.

The only one I can seem to find is Direct -Travel-Insurance. But it doesn't seem to have many good reviews.

However, should it be delayed or cancelled today or tommorow because of the va would my claims be rejected?

Of course. If you had no car insurance and were in an accident, do you think if you called an insurance company to get coverage, as you were being taken to hospital in an ambulance, that this incident would be covered? No.

I called Travel Guard and checked and was told it would be covered because I have had my policy in effect long before the volcano eruption began. So those without already would be out of luck to try and get insured now.

maybe if you had already bought it that would be a starting point.

when you book your next trip......book your insurance
