Flashback to the last flight reservation you made: you are about to complete your booking and then the flight insurance offer pops up on the page. The cautionary message usually in the vein of ‘protect yourself from unforeseen travel emergencies or interruptions by paying for travel insurance now.’ Certainly the idea of missing your flight and not only being unable to make your destination but being out your money is enough to prompt an immediate ‘yes’ from many travelers.
