Travel Insured International has been made aware that on September 4, 2018, Hurricane Florence was named by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (“NOAA”).  Hurricane Florence is the first major hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season. The storm could pose a threat to the U.S. East Coast and directly impact travelers by later this week.

While many travel suppliers and airlines are trying to reroute flights, Travel Insured understands those with plans may have questions, and they are encouraged to call us.

Depending on your plan, coverages may include benefits for Travel Delay if you are delayed while en route to, from, or during your trip; and Missed Connection if you miss your cruise or tour departure.  You may also be covered for Trip Interruption or Trip Cancellation if your trip must be disrupted or cancelled due to various covered reasons such as an evacuation ordered or recommended by local government authorities.  Depending on your plan, you may be covered for Trip Cancellation if you cancel your trip within 48 hours of your scheduled departure date and time if the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (“NOAA”) declares a hurricane warning for your destination. This cancellation must occur 14 days following your effective date for Trip Cancellation coverage.  Please consult the NOAA website for the most up to date information. 

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. Every Travel Insured plan also includes Non-Insurance Emergency Travel Assistance Services available 24/7 to help travelers whenever they are in need of assistance during their trip.

This statement only provides a general summary. Please refer to your actual plan document for the specific terms and conditions of the specific plan purchased as eligibility for coverage varies based upon the specific plan terms, conditions and limitations, and may vary by state or may not be available in all states. Travel Insured recommends travelers purchase proper travel protection plans in case of unforeseen circumstances and to know where to go and where not to go during their travels.
