Going To A Wedding When You’re Single

8 August 2019

“Is it wrong I want to look better than the bride?”

Look out! Warmer days are around the corner which means…wedding season is fast upon is! A grand celebration of love, life and future generations to come! Tulle, artisanal mason jars, fairy lights and tears of joy.

Or tears of self pity, depending on who’s doing the balling. A scenario summed up to perfection in Buzzfeed‘s ode to the single-and-alone wedding guest. (A little too relatable…)

If this is you, take heart. You and your sassy single self will be the envy of every loved-up duo in the room (possibly, probably not) At the very least you scored a free meal. Plus you got to dress your best life, and hopefully stay somewhere lavish and instagram-worthy. Destination-weddings are all the rage, right?

Listen, going to a wedding single and alone is tricky.

Whatever the case, if you and yourself are voyaging to a wedding or special occasion soon, remember to plus-one your travel insurance. Your travel insurance should offer cancellation cover, which takes care of a couple of things, like paying for cancelled or delayed flight costs.

It gets even better with benefits tailored to unique circumstances, like  Travel with Jane’s Special Event Delay cover.

If a travel hold-up gets in the way of you attending the ‘wedding of the century’ or any other special event, we’ll dish out up to $2,000 cover on Basic, and up to $5,000 on our Comprehensive plans. This is to cover the reasonable extra costs to get you to the do on time. Single maybe. Punctual, always.
