As travelers plan their trips this fall, many will have concerns about hurricanes causing problems with their plans
As the travel date approaches, you watch the Weather Channel, hoping to see clear sky forcasts in your vacation town. You’ve been waiting all year and the last thing you want is a rainy vacation.
You can’t always be so lucky, however. Many travelers like to take advantage of travel deals, but oftentimes the trip takes place during “hurricane season”. No hurricane, no problem. You have a great time, relax, get some sun, and get a good deal too.
But if a hurricane is in the forcast, things aren’t as good
With no coverage at all, you are at the mercy of the weather. If your trip is cancelled, you could be out a lot of money. Any non-refundable deposits or payments would be lost. With a bad hurricane, you could spend a few thousand dollars watching the storm from your couch at home. Not a great vacation.
If you do purchase travel insurance, many plans will provide coverage for trips cancelled for named hurricanes
This means that a storm must be upgraded to an actual hurricane by the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration National Hurricane Center.
Some companies have expanded the coverage to even include hurricane warnings
Again, the warnings must be issued by the NOAA, but this additional coverage can be a big moneysaver.Â If the threat of hurricane makes you worry about a cancelled vacation, consider a plan from these companies. Their added coverage for hurricane warnings could make your vacation much, much more enjoyable.
