Travel insurance

by Angeline Booher / July 22, 2005 8:35 AM PDT

There was a local story about a family whose vacation at a posh resort out of the USA was cut short by Hurricane Emily. They want their money back.

Thus I assume it was a ''package'' deal.

Now, it's been a long time since I have traveled on a package deal. But we always bought Travel Insurance. It covered cancellation by us or the sponsoring company, the financial failure of the sponsoring company, trip interruption, and other goodies. It was not expensive, and offered peace of mind. A quick Google check showed it still is inexpensive.

The guy in the story could have to pay a lawyer a lot more than the cost of the insurance.

I dunno. It just seems that when one lays out a couple of thousand dollars or more, that the insurance is a wise move.

May or may not cover "acts of God"

Youd have to check. If it does, I bet it would cost a wee bit more.

Speaking about ''Acts of God''
by Rolway / July 22, 2005 10:33 AM PDT

Few years back I had Hurricane damage and when the Insurance company paid off, they waived the $500 deductible stating it was an ''Act of God'' That was OK with me even though I don't think God caused it, but thats what they said. So, my guess is, an Insurance would cover it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
