Antarctica to UAE missed connection


A Ripcord Rescue Travel Insurance client was on a trip to Antarctica when her return flight to South America was delayed, and she missed her connection back home as a result.

The flight from a small island on the Antarctic Peninsula to Punta Arenas, Chile, was rescheduled, and so she was unable to board her connecting flight from Chile to Dubai.

As a comprehensive travel insurance policyholder she filed a claim and Ripcord reimbursed her the full $1,000 limit for a missed connection.
