Countrywide Snow and Ice Stranding Calls for Imaginative Entertainment

CSA Travel Protection Offers Stress-Reducing Tips for Anxious Travelers

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - February 3, 2011) - Multiple airport closings and dangerous icy conditions mean thousands of travelers are today finding themselves spending much more time in an airport than they planned. To alleviate some anxiety and help these travelers make the most of this unexpected "time off," CSA Travel Protection offers stressed-out travelers some tips for keeping themselves entertained while stranded at the airport.

Ten fun games to play while stranded at an airport:

1. Buy $15 margaritas and $10 sandwiches for all your "new friends."
2. Hog all power outlets by charging your phone, laptop and iPod at the same time.
3. Create intriguing, soap opera-like background stories for other waiting passengers.
4. Play the "count the Starbucks® in the terminal" game.
5. See how many people you can get to smile back at you.
6. Visit a local merchant -- or event gate -- more times than necessary to try and win the crown of Foursquare mayor.
7. Check the payphones and vending machines for change.
8. Note -- and admire -- bad ties.
9. Return all the unclaimed smart carts.
10. Create an amusing Twitter hash tag, like the popular #snOMG and #snowpocalypse, and see if you can make it a trending topic.

CSA Travel Protection knows this is one of the most difficult and nerve-racking times for both business and leisure travelers. While travel insurance can't stop the unexpected from happening, it can protect and support travelers when mishaps occur, such as flight delays and missed connections.
