Holiday Travelers Stranded when Missed Connections Aren’t Covered, warns Squaremouth

St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) December 24, 2012

This week marks one of the busiest travel times of the year at airports across the country. Squaremouth, America’s fastest growing travel insurance comparison site, is reminding travelers to choose wisely when considering coverage for missed or delayed flights.

Initially, the differences between trip interruption and missed connection coverage may seem subtle, but the coverage a traveler chooses can greatly differ. So when it comes to covering delays, what is the difference between the two benefits?

Trip interruption coverage is a popular choice for many travelers. This coverage reimburses unused trip costs if a traveler has to end a trip early and return home. This benefit can be valuable to travelers, so long as the interruption falls under the covered reasons listed on the policy. These reasons may include bad weather, strike or mechanical failure. If a traveler satisfies the coverage requirements, trip interruption will reimburse the costs incurred to get back home or to re-join the trip.

“Many people don’t realize they have the option to catch up to a trip if something goes wrong,” says Chris Harvey, CEO of Squaremouth. “This option allows travelers to continue on with their plans and avoid cancelling expensive portions of their vacation.”

For some travelers, one disadvantage of relying on trip interruption coverage is they must insure at least a portion of their trip costs. This may mean more upfront cost but the traveler would be eligible for more reimbursement in the event of a claim. Coverage provided by the trip interruption benefit can total up to 200% of the trip cost. For some travelers, this might offer thousands more in coverage compared to the missed connection benefit, which may only offer a few hundred dollars.

There are circumstances where missed connection coverage is more beneficial. This coverage can reimburse a traveler for fees associated with flight changes. Similar to trip interruption, it may cover the transportation costs incurred to catch up to a cruise, tour or destination if the traveler misses a flight due to a common carrier delay. Although it varies by policy, delays can result from inclement weather or common carrier complications.

A traveler might not have to insure a trip cost in order to take advantage of the missed connection benefit in a policy. Many policies offer this benefit regardless of whether travelers have chosen to insure their expenses. In general, it’s often easier to meet the requirements for missed connection coverage.

A policyholder should however, be aware of time requirements for most missed connection benefits. “It’s always important for people to know the details of their policy,” says Chris Harvey, CEO of Squaremouth. “If a traveler misses a flight by two hours and their missed connection coverage requires a minimum three hour delay, they won’t be covered.”

Bottom line, missed connection is usually easier to claim but less money up front. Trip interruption however, typically requires a more difficult delay, but can reimburse a higher dollar amount.

Whether it’s the higher reimbursement amount with trip interruption or the ease of satisfying the coverage requirements with missed connection, travelers are encouraged to evaluate their specific needs. The differences between the two benefits can greatly impact a traveler’s ability to receive reimbursement, which is why choosing the policy that fits best can make all the difference for holiday travel.

Safe-Direct Car Shipping Enumerates the Top Five Most Common Mistakes When Shipping A Car

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2012

Most first time auto shippers have the wrong idea about the auto transport industry. Sometimes, that can affect a customer’s ability to successfully ship a car in a timely fashion. Here are the top 5 mistakes first time auto shippers make when trying to ship a car, according to Safe-Direct Car Shipping.

One common misconception is comparing getting a spot on a car carrier’s truck to reserving a seat on an airplane. In the auto transport industry there simply are no advance schedules like there are for the travel industry. That’s because, unlike airlines, that schedule regular flights out of regular hubs, there are no hubs or regular runs in the auto transport industry. Instead, there are thousands of independent trucks across the country each serving general routes (southeast to southwest and back, or the Midwest only, as examples). Each independent car hauler has unique customers with unique addresses and destinations. So, car carrier’s routes vary from week to week, which affects timing and scheduling.

Related to that is the expectation that a customer should be able to reserve a truck weeks or months in advance for pick-up on a specific date at a specific time. But there is no standard, coordinated pre-set schedule for all trucks. For the reasons outlined above, pre-planning is simply not an option no matter how much notice a customer gives. Cross-country auto transports are confirmed the week of pick-up. Since truckers cannot control things like the weather, traffic, issues with other customers, they cannot predict with accuracy the time each run will take them. As drivers have to allow for the fluidity of their schedule, so too should the customers expect flexibility with the service.

Another mistake eager auto transport customers make is putting down a deposit before a truck is confirmed for their transport. Most customers assume that doing so guarantees service within a specific time frame and/or for a specific (very low) price. This is simply not how the industry works. Until a specific trucker agrees to the pay and confirms availability on a specific date, there is no carrier transport contract. In fact, having rigid timing restrictions and/or a low-ball budget is more likely to scare off potential carriers whether or not there is a deposit.

That brings up another critical issue: price-point. Many potential customers receive lots of estimates, only place their order with the lowest suggested offer assuming the price quoted is a done deal. However, as explained earlier, there are thousands of independent haulers, each setting their own routes and accepting the best offers. The lower the offer, the less appealing it is to a potential trucker. There are no set rates or lowest price guarantees – if the offer is too low, the vehicle will simply not draw interest and will unfortunately not move, no matter how long the wait.

One final mistake first time car shippers make is not researching the industry. There are lots of on-line resources including plenty of customer review sites where a newbie can learn about the car shipping process from the experiences of those who have gone before. While it is prudent to read customer reviews with a grain of salt, it becomes clear that many “unhappy customers” simply had unrealistic expectations of the service from the get-go. Most satisfied customers were, in fact, well-informed about the industry and prepared for the unique business that is auto transporting.

New LEVANA® Baby Video Monitor Features Best Battery Life Ever

Niagara Falls (PRWEB) December 20, 2012

LEVANA is thrilled to announce the latest addition to its family of digital baby video monitors –JENA™. This baby video monitor was developed after extensive market research by the LEVANA team to determine the features that matter most to new and expecting parents. Respondents to numerous recent surveys indicated long battery life to be the most important feature parents looked for in a monitor, so the LEVANA team developed a solution that would give parents at least 8 hours of continuous battery life with the screen on – nearly double that of the competition. This long-lasting lithium ion rechargeable battery is one of many features that make JENA an essential tool for today’s busy parent.

“Put simply: we have the best continuous battery life of any baby video monitor on the market,” said Raj Jain, Managing Director of CWD. “Our long-lasting battery life only grows more impressive when you consider that parents receive a 12 hour charge when our new PEEP mode feature is enabled.” Short for ‘Power-on/off Energy Efficient Picture’, PEEP mode automatically brings the monitor’s screen to life when a baby makes noise and adjusts to power-save mode when all is quiet, further extending JENA’s already stellar battery life to nearly 12 hours while giving parents a full night of rest.

Peace of mind has always been the key to LEVANA’s success, and develops their baby video monitors with parents’ needs in mind from start to finish. A variety of feedback initiatives designed to give parents a voice in the product development process have become invaluable reference points for the LEVANA team. A rebate of over $ 170 was offered to those who purchased JENA and filled out a brief feedback survey. These types of endeavors allow LEVANA to continue to raise the quality of their products while giving parents the power to do more knowing their child is safe.

JENA is available for purchase at


LEVANA is committed to the research, development and distribution of products designed to aid parents in ensuring the well-being of their children. Their products are inspired by the story of Levana, the Roman goddess of newborn children. A protector and caregiver, she devoted her existence to the well-being of infants. In 2002, SVAT Electronics started specializing in the design and manufacture of Video Security Products. Realizing this technology could help provide parents with much-needed peace of mind, the LEVANA brand was born in 2006.
