Would You Buy Sunshine Insurance?

Travel insurance can be a lifesaver on certain types of trips, but with less people choosing to spend their money on vacations, the industry has seen sunnier days. These gloomier times have encouraged businesses to become more creative, and a couple French travel agencies are trying to attract customers with sunshine insurance.

If vacationers endure at least four days of rain during one week, the insurance policy would make them eligible for a partial trip refund. Satellite photos provided by the French weather bureau are used to calculate how much money policy holders should be paid. The agencies did a trial run last year before officially launching the product, and 10 percent of the travelers who expressed interest in the insurance policy would have received money back due to insufficient weather.

I like the idea of sun insurance. Last summer we were in Washington DC and it rained for 3 days straight...ruined a lot of sightseeing plans and made it tough to get around town. One day of rain, ok but not 3!! Lucked out this summer in NYC, lots of sunshine.

no. but i don't mind rain. we had a couple of days of rain on our vacation last month and it was fine. there are always indoor activities and it was nice to experience different where we visited.i'd be more likely to buy snow insurance for say a ski vacation. no man made snow please :raspberry:
