Extreme Weather & Natural Disasters

Can I still buy travel insurance after an earthquake happens at my destination?


Last Updated:

Short Answer

Policies are still available for future travel. However, policies can no longer be purchased for the earthquake that has already occurred.

More Detail

Travel insurance can still be purchased for future trips, including Hurricane & Weather coverage for future natural disasters. However, no policies purchased after the earthquake occurred will include coverage for any losses related to the earthquake that has already occurred, as it is now considered a foreseen event.
