Hurricane Elsa formed in the Atlantic Ocean as a tropical storm on July 1, 2021, with a path that includes many popular Caribbean destinations and the U.S. On July 2, 2021, Elsa developed into the first Atlantic hurricane of the 2021 hurricane season.
Most travel insurance providers can cover hurricanes that impact travel, as long as the policy was purchased before the storm was named. For Hurricane Elsa, travelers would have needed to purchase their policy prior to July 1, 2021. Travelers who had a policy in place prior to this date may be eligible for coverage under the Trip Cancellation and Travel Delay benefits.
