We have heard today that air traffic controllers are expected to be among 750,000 workers who will join a day of mass strikes that are planned by trade unions for the 30th June. If this happens then the travel industry will face more delays, cancellations and travel misery. Oh dear.
If you are due to be travelling on the 30th June or shortly after then it should be noted that you will be covered for Travel Delay, Abandonment and Missed Departure on your World First Travel Insurance policy as long as you took out your policy before 16th June (today) at 0800 GMT.
Unfortunately anyone who took out a policy after this cut off time will not be covered. However, as usual, your airline should be responsible for offering you alternate flights or compensation for additional accommodation.
We will update this story as and when we hear more.
