01/06/20 - Puerto Rico Earthquakes

by Travel Insured | Jan 08, 2020

On January 6-7, 2020, strong earthquakes struck Puerto Rico, killing and injuring many and destroying several structures. We extend our deepest condolences to those who have been affected.

Travel Insured International confirms to travelers that coverage against natural disasters may be included in plans purchased under the company's Worldwide Trip Protector brand including Worldwide Trip Protector Plus, Worldwide Trip Protector, and Worldwide Trip Protector Lite.

Travel Insured plan holders whose itineraries include Puerto Rico may be eligible for coverage within the Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption, Travel Delay or Missed Connection benefits because of a natural disaster.

The plans provide Trip Cancellation or Trip Interruption coverage when a Natural Disaster causes the insured traveler’s destination to be rendered uninhabitable, and it remains uninhabitable during the time of the scheduled trip dates. The destination must have been rendered uninhabitable while coverage was in effect. Trip Cancellation coverage would have been in effect for plans purchased on or before January 5, 2020.

The plans provide Travel Delay coverage if the traveler is delayed for while en route to or from, or during the trip due to a Natural Disaster. The plans also provide Missed Connection coverage if a traveler misses a cruise or tour departure due to a delay caused by a Natural Disaster.

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. 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.

At this time, we advise travelers to take enhanced precautions. Please contact us at 1-855-752-8303 with any questions you may have.

Insurance benefits in the plans are subject to limitations and exclusions, including an exclusion for pre‑existing conditions.
