In the recent year's developments many travelers stranded in Europe and Thailand airports were not assisted by their insurance companies. When the eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull sent ashes to the sky and disturbed the air line flights in the Europe the insurance companies said that their policies don't cover volcanic eruptions and can't support those passengers in those European air ports with the insurance policy coverage.

Like wise in Thailand political unrest left air passengers in chaos and the insurance companies didn't like to support the passengers as their policy don't cover political unrest and terrorism related incidents.
