needing to cancel flight.. need help real quick, please.

Our babysitter has fallen ill with strep & larengitis. I can't seem to find anyone else to keep the kids. So.. we need to cancel.

We are flying Delta, we bought the travel insurance. I have 1 hour until my flight. Do we call Delta or the airport?

Call Delta! I don't think that you will be covered for this since the babysitter is not a family member but you can always call and ask.

The airport won't care, you need to call the number that was provided with your insurance. But I doubt that you'll be covered for lack of child care. But you never know, good luck.

If there was one hour before the flight, would you not already be at the airport? If not, then, you already had missed it,

Sorry, does not make sense at all.

Sorry, this has happened to you, you probably won't have much luck with the insurance, just put it down to experience.

Prehaps she meant an hour till they leave for airport, In any case the answer is you call the emergency number on your travel insurance docuements, wether they will pay out is another matter as none of us no your policy details and if they do included the babysittier getting ill.
