Pilgrimages and retreats: WYD pilgrim left nothing to chance


CCI-Catholic Church Insurance

Travel insurance with Catholic Church Insurance

Prepared: “The next World Youth Day will be held in Panama City, in 2019. Kelly is already planning her pilgrimage. And the first thing she’s packing? You guessed it, travel insurance.”

An Australian pilgrim says her decision to travel to Krakow for World Youth Day was the best decision she’s ever made. But not everything went to plan. Looking back, Kelly says taking out travel insurance before she left was definitely her second-best decision. Without it, her dream trip would have turned into a nightmare.

KELLY had never been overseas before but after years of planning and saving, she finally had her ticket. Poland.

Waving goodbye to friends and family at the airport was an emotional moment but what lay ahead in Krakow kept her spirits high.

In Singapore, however, while changing planes, Kelly’s luck took a turn for the worse. 

Her connecting flight was delayed, forcing her to find a hotel and stay overnight. 

Then, almost two days later when she finally arrived in Krakow, her luggage was nowhere to be seen. She’d lost all her belongings, including her laptop.

These unfortunate incidents could have cost Kelly thousands of dollars and jeopardised her trip. Thankfully, though, she’d taken out travel insurance with CCI before she left. 

In Singapore her meals and accommodation were covered. 

And in Krakow, her policy allowed her to replace her lost belongings.

Even though she was on the other side of the world, Kelly was easily able to speak with customer service staff and arrange the help she needed.

The next World Youth Day will be held in Panama City, in 2019. Kelly is already planning her pilgrimage. 

And the first thing she’s packing? 

You guessed it, travel insurance.
