Travel Insurance

Trip Cancellation insurance can cover you for 100% of your prepaid and nonrefundable trip expenses if you need to cancel for a reason covered by your policy. We always recommend that travelers purchase travel insurance.

The most common covered reason to cancel a trip is an illness, injury, or death. However, you can also purchase coverage for other events – including hurricanes or coastal conditions or weather events.

Hurricane Season runs from June 1st to November 30th each year.  In the event of a covered hurricane or other unforeseen severe weather, travel insurance provides coverage under the trip cancellation and interruption benefits. Remember that it likely must be purchased before a storm is named.

According to SquareMouth (a travel insurance comparison company that helps customers search, compare, and buy travel insurance policies online)…

For some travelers, purchasing travel insurance can be an afterthought. Maybe they put off buying travel insurance until the last minute, or maybe they didn’t realize that most domestic health insurance policies don’t provide international coverage.

Fortunately, travelers can purchase travel insurance as late as the day before their departure date if they want to buy a fully comprehensive travel insurance policy, which includes cancellation coverage for their trip costs. For travel medical insurance policies without Trip Cancellation coverage, travelers may be able to buy a policy after their departure date.
