What if I can’t take my upcoming trip to the Gulf Coast because it’s flooded?

Last Updated:

If you bought a travel insurance policy before Hurricane Michael was named on October 7th, you can be covered if you can’t take your trip due to flooding along the Gulf Coast.

The Hurricane and Weather benefit can reimburse all of your prepaid and nonrefundable trip costs if you can’t travel because your destination is uninhabitable due to flooding. This can include the cost of airfare, hotels, tours, and cruises.

In addition to your destination being uninhabitable due to flooding, this benefit can also cover you if you can’t reach your destination because of a significant flight delay, if your hotel is damaged or without power, or if your destination is under a mandatory evacuation.

This information is time sensitive and may vary by policy. If you have questions about a specific policy, please contact us directly at 800-240-0369. Our customer service representatives are available from 8am to 10pm ET, seven days a week, and are delighted to help.
