Extreme Weather & Natural Disasters

If there is a storm, when can I no longer be covered by travel insurance?


Last Updated:

You can only be covered for a storm if you purchased your travel insurance policy before the storm was named.

More Detail
Travel insurance providers consider the naming of a storm the cut-off date for coverage.

Once a storm is named, it is considered a known event, meaning no new policies can be purchased to cover the storm. Any new policies purchased after that date may provide coverage for future storms, but will exclude the named storm.
