Can I still buy a travel insurance policy for hurricane season?

Last Updated:

Short Answer

Yes, you can still buy a policy with coverage for hurricane season. However, you cannot buy a policy with coverage for a specific storm once it is named.

More Detail

Travel insurance is designed to cover unforeseen events. If a hurricane is already forecast to disrupt your trip, it is too late to buy a policy. However, coverage is still available for potential future storms during hurricane season.
