Are hurricanes a covered reason for trip cancellation with a typical travel insurance plan? Are there any exceptions? What is the most important aspect of buying insurance that includes coverage due to a hurricane?
Hurricanes are generally a covered reason in most of our travel insurance plans. A travel insurance and assistance plan through Travel Guard can cover vacation investments if severe weather directly affects your arrangements or accommodations. For example, if you are forced to cancel a trip due to a named hurricane causing your destination to be uninhabitable, travel insurance with trip cancellation coverage can reimburse pre-paid nonrefundable expenses, up to the limit of coverage purchased. Coverage must be purchased before the hurricane is named.
In addition to covering travel costs, our most popular plans provide emergency travel services, including 24/7 emergency travel assistance, which re-books cancelled flights, makes new travel arrangements and secures hotel reservations..
