Is there "trip insurance" for this?

Jump to last reply

I was reading an article this morning about getting air deals by combining segments where there are deals available with other separate flights. For example, instead of flying SFO-IST-SFO, fly SFO-IAD-SFO, and separately ticket IAD-IST-IAD, because Turkish Airlines has a deal going on between Dulles and Istanbul that would save us close to $1000. Of course, that means there's a risk of missing the IAD-IST flight or the IAD-SFO flight if the other flight is delayed or cancelled. So, I was wondering if there's trip insurance available that would cover this possibility (basically, pay to get you where you were going if you miss the second flight because the first flight is delayed or cancelled).
