Travel insurance is always a great idea, especially for an expensive trip. Covers cancellation, delays, baggage loss, some weather issues (hurricanes if forced to delay or change your trip or need to evacuate, etc), even some pre-existing medical conditions for self or family (depending on the coverage chosen). Rates starts at $39 pp depending on plan chosen, trip cost and age so can be very inexpensive for basic coverage. People who had insurance and had European delays due to the volcanic eruption were covered, those without were SOL.
