Any travelers with an East Coast airport departure on the first Monday of March who skipped insurance because winter was almost over made a bad call. The March 2 Nor’easter that brought almost a foot of snow to many parts of the Northeast and cancelled dozens of flights was a major delay to anyone heading to winter vacations or cruises. It was a reminder that late season storms can be as disruptive on their day of arrival as mid-winter blasts. Hurricane season starts June 1 and its approach carries the same warning for summer vacation travelers. Plan ahead with trip insurance or face the potential of unpredictable, costly storm disruptions. In addition to Trip Delay coverage ranging from $500 to $1,500 depending on type of Worldwide Trip Protector plan purchased, and Missed Connection coverage ranging from $300 to $750, all WTP plans include coverage for Trip Cancellation, up to the full trip cost, when weather causes complete cessation of your client’s common carrier service for 24 consecutive hours.
