Natural Disaster / Bad Weather Coverage Don’t let a hurricane or bad weather ruin Your Trip

Every year thousands of people deal with the stress and frustration of trip delays, reschedules, and cancellations due to Mother Nature. Severe weather can ruin months of planning and anticipation resulting in lost travel expenses, many of which could have been covered by a simple travel insurance policy.

  • Your home being damaged or made uninhabitable due to a fire, flood, or natural disaster
  • Your travel accommodations are ravaged by adverse weather or natural disaster.
  • A mandatory evacuation is issued due to severe weather cutting your trip short.
  • Your workplace sustains damage or made uninhabitable by a storm or natural disaster
  • Your airline or cruise line ceases operations due to inclement or bad weather conditions.

You’re even covered for any additional expenses you incur if your trip is delayed due to weather conditions for upwards of six (6) hours or more with the Travel Delay benefit. One very important note is that you must always purchase coverage before a tropical storm or hurricane is named in order to be eligible.
