Depending on your plan coverages may include benefits for Travel Delay if your trip is delayed, Missed Connection if you are delayed and need help in rejoining your trip, Trip Interruption if your trip is disrupted and Trip Cancellation if there is a mandatory evacuation ordered or recommended by local government authorities; or if the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (“NOAA”) declared a hurricane warning within 48 hours of your departure.  As a special consideration due to the unknown track and severity, if a state of emergency has been declared, Trip Cancellation coverage would be also be available under a hurricane watch and within 96 hours of your departure.  For insured travelers who purchased Cancel for Any Reason coverage, we remind you that cancellations must be made 48 or more hours prior to scheduled departure and payment is limited to 75% of the non-refundable trip cost up to the stated plan maximum limit.
