The Story So Far
An overseas trip has leisure written all over it. The anticipation leading to the journey is filled with excitement. Planning and preparations can go on for months. From accommodation to food, currency to visa, there are numerous things needed to be considered, before taking off. Once you land in your destination, a series of surprises await you. The good ones transform into memories. It is the unpleasant surprises that play a spoilsport. Within a matter of minutes, the entire joy can overturn. To better understand this, read the story of Rajesh and his family.
Rajesh and his friend, both entrepreneurs, decided to go on a family vacation to Europe. Being the first foreign trip for the entire group of 8 people, no one was short on enthusiasm. This dream trip meant a lot to Rajesh,who turned 40 recently.The entire booking and inquiries were done by him. The moment they were all waiting for, had arrived as they landed at their first international destination. Little did they know about the shock that awaited them.
As they stood to wait for the bags to arrive one by one, they realized, it was only Rajesh’s suitcase that had not come. Even after hours and hours of running around, they could not locate the suitcase. His medicines and warm clothes, very important for the trip, were in the bag. Due to this, they had to let go of a couple of tourist spots planned for that day. The biggest disappointment came to Rajesh when the airport authorities asked him if he had an international travel insurance plan. He realized that the flight company will reimburse his loss, but the process will take a lot of time. Had he choose not to ignore his ticket agent's suggestion to take insurance, he would have benefitted from the ‘baggage delay clause’. In the end, Rajesh couldn’t wait and he incurred the expenses to get the necessary clothes and medicines himself.
