Yes. The Flight Delay Service is offered in addition to the coverage you already have.
To access the service, you must be registered on the Flight Delay Service’s platform at least one hour before the scheduled departure time of your flight.
The delay time is calculated from the original departure time.
As soon as the delay reaches or exceeds three or six hours, if it is in one or more
announcements, you are entitled to compensation or services provided.
We will send you a text message (SMS) and an email with a link to a web page, from
there, you will be able to download your access ticket to the airport lounge and/ or your hotel reservation.
7. Do I need to pay for the hotel?
No, the Flight Delay Service is responsible for booking and paying the hotel room.
All you need to do is submit the booking confirmation which will be sent to you by text message and email at the hotel reception.
8. What happens if the lounge is overbooked or there is no lounge at the airport?
If no airport lounge is available, or the lounge is overbooked, a monetary compensation of $40 per traveler will be paid in real time.
If no hotel room is available, a single monetary compensation of $250 per Blue Cross travel insurance policy will be offered.
Monetary compensations are paid in real time via Interac transfer or direct deposit to your bank account, depending on the option selected when you registered.
A text message (SMS) and an email will be sent to you when the transfer is made.
Monetary compensations are limited to $1,000 per contract. Annual plans have a limit of $1,000 per 12 months period.
