Is travel insurance worth it?

While on a skiing trip to the USA recently, I had the opportunity to put my travel insurance policy to the test.  

Weeks before our trip, my husband had placed a request for the upgrades with Qantas. Now, the prospect of sleeping in a flat bed and drinking champagne while winging our way home to Brisbane had become reality. Hooray for Frequent Flyer points!  

But on the morning of our international flight and we missed a connecting flight due to bad weather. That caused us to miss our international flight.   

After spending hours on the phone to Qantas and the insurance company, here's what happened. Yes, travel insurance is worth it.
