Wow Air is Done- By Jen Campbell of Escape Destinations Travel
As the news spread this past week about WOWAir being out of business, I couldn't help but remember our trip to Germany and back, how super duper basic the flight was, and the mix-up taking us days to get home...although being "stuck" in Germany is NOT something I was complaining about at all.
WOWAir going down, reminded me of the thousands of passengers that were stranded trying to get home. I wondered how these passengers plans might have changed if they had purchased travel insurance (thus protecting them from losing their money) and helping them get home on another airline expeditiously. Or, had they purchased their flight through a travel agent, just by contacting this agent when their flight was cancelled, would have sent their travel agent scrambling but assisting them in securing the next available flight (on another carrier) but saving them time from having to do so on their own.
Two Things Learned:
1) Use a travel agent and
2) Purchase travel insurance.
You never know when life, and HUGE Obstacles, can come your way.
