What if my flight or cruise is delayed because of a hurricane?

Last Updated:

If your flight or cruise is delayed due to a hurricane, travel insurance can cover additional costs and lost expenses under the Travel Delay and Missed Connection benefits.

This coverage is typically triggered after a 3-12 hour delay and can cover:

  • The cost of extra meals and accommodations during the delay
  • Lost expenses if the delay causes you to miss nights at a prepaid hotel
  • The cost to catch up with your trip if the delay causes you to miss the departure of a cruise or tour

If your flight or cruise is delayed more than 12-48 hours due to a hurricane, you may be covered to cancel your trip.
