When can I buy travel insurance to cover a tropical storm or hurricane?

Last Updated:

You can buy travel insurance with coverage for a tropical storm or hurricane up until the day before your departure date, as long as the storm has not been named.

The Hurricane & Weather benefit is included in most travel insurance policies under Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption, which can be purchased anytime up until the day before you leave for your trip. This benefit can reimburse your prepaid and non-refundable trip expenses if you are unable to travel due to unforeseen inclement weather, including a hurricane, tropical storm, or other form of severe weather, and you meet your policy’s specific requirements for coverage
