Cassie’s plans were cancelled because of unexpected flooding. The heavy monsoon rains often cause flash flooding and landslides in many parts of India. It happened just as Cassie was ready to set off on her Indian adventure. All her transport, accommodation and tours had been pre-paid. Unfortunately, her intended destinations were all affected by flash flooding and landslides, which forced the tour operator to cancel her trip. Cassie’s travel insurance policy covered her for unexpected weather events, and she was reimbursed for the money she had lost on her pre-paid bookings.
