Hurricane and Tropical Storms

The official Atlantic hurricane season lasts from June 1 to November 30. To maximize vacation protection from storms and hurricanes, travelers should buy insurance when they make their travel plans and before a storm or hurricane is announced.

Once the National Weather Service issues a warning for a storm or hurricane, it is considered a foreseeable event. Policies purchased on or after the warning date do not cover losses related to that event.

Winter Storms

Snow storms may frequently disrupt air travel during the winter months. For many storms, your airline may be able to get you on your way within a few hours of your scheduled departure. For longer delays, airlines frequently allow customers to change their plans without a change fee. In the event of a storm, contact your airline before you depart for the airport to learn about potential delays and rescheduling options.
