Hurricane Dora was first named a tropical storm on June 25, 2017. It developed into the first hurricane of the season on June 26, 2017.

Many travel insurance policies include coverage for hurricanes and tropical storms that impact travel, as long as the policy was purchased before the storm was named. Travelers who had a policy in place prior to June 25, 2017 may have coverage for Hurricane Dora, including Trip Cancellation and Travel Delay.

If you are currently traveling and affected by Hurricane Dora, contact your provider's 24-Hour Emergency Assistance for help.

Dora became a named storm on June 25, 2017. As of that date, the storm is no longer considered unforeseen and any new travel insurance policies will not provide any coverage related to the storm.

If you purchased a policy before June 25, 2017, you may be covered to cancel or interrupt your trip. Typically, a storm must significantly impact your trip to trigger coverage - such as rendering your destination uninhabitable or significantly delaying your flight to your destination.
