Default Booking flight with TA--dang commissions!

I am going to be using the free cruise towards a 7-day Legend out of Tampa (I found I can upgrade, so I'll upgrade to 8E). I will have too book my air separately, but to get cancellation insurance for the flight I will have to book it through a travel agent. I asked how much the fees were to book a flight through a travel agent and it seems that the percentage they would have gotten from the airline is passed on to us the buyer! If I wanted to throw caution to the wind I would go without travel insurance, but travelling in January is iffy in Canada because you don't know how the weather will affect flights.

Do any of you Canucks out there have any options for buying air cancellation insurance for flights booked online. I'd say everyone, but some is probably meant only for Americans.

Dang, I wish the airlines would sell/offer flight cancellation insurance. It only makes sense......

They do. Book on the flights on the web and there's an insurance option. Air Canada for example directs you to the RBC insurance.

If you are a member of AMA, they also sell flight insurance... even to non members. There's lots of options.

Just make sure you go a day or two early because you never know when we're going to get blessed with some winter weather
