Travel arrangements can change due to weather, traffic, breakdowns, personal problems or any variation of unforeseen circumstances. To protect yourself from financial loss, we strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance for each member of your travelling party. Don’t assume that your credit card insurance is adequate.
You should purchase travel insurance that covers the cost of additional accommodation or lost accommodation for cancellations due to weather. You should also purchase travel insurance that covers last-minute cancellations because someone has COVID-19 and is unable to travel to Lord Howe. If you are not able to find a travel insurance policy that covers both weather cancellations and COVID-19, you should consider buying two separate policies. Check the policy before you pay.
It’s not unusual for guests to get stuck on Lord Howe for an extra day or two due to strong winds, or cancel within a few days of arrival due to COVID-19, so please be warned, and pay the small amount for travel insurance so that you have peace of mind. We can’t stress this enough! Please get travel insurance, ideally as soon as you book your holiday and pay your deposit.
