In honor of National Hurricane Preparedness Week, we’re highlighting the importance of travel insurance and how it can provide protection when your vacation is affected by severe weather. Running from May 25 through May 31, National Hurricane Preparedness Week highlights the importance of being prepared for the bad weather hurricanes can bring – especially during this time of year.
According to the National Weather Service, “two keys to weather safety are to prepare for risks and to act on those preparations when alerted by emergency officials.”
If your vacation is affected by severe weather, do you have a plan?
Consider making travel insurance part of your plan. Did you know if there is a Hurricane Warning issued within 24 hours of your trip departure, your trip can be canceled and be covered? In fact, in the event NOAA issues a Hurricane warning more than 14 days after purchase, travel insurance provides coverage under the Trip Cancellation and Interruption benefit.
In addition, our travel insurance plans provide 24 hour worldwide assistance. You can send emergency messages to friends, family or business associates with this service.
It’s always important to think ahead when traveling, but especially during hurricane season. If you have questions about how travel insurance can provide protection, leave a comment below. We look forward to hearing from you!by
