Beth was frustrated when she realised she was stranded in Brazil. Tropical countries often experience extreme weather that can make it unsafe to fly. While waiting to board her flight home, torrential rain caused the flight to be cancelled. Beth had missed all her connections, but she was able to secure new flights that landed much later than planned at her destination. The new flights were more expensive because of the short notice. Beth turned to her insurer to help cover the cost, and also learned she could claim some of her other out-of-pocket expenses that were due to the bad weather.
