Traveling to Europe for the holidays? Visit our Europe Travel Alert and Travel Insurance Information Center for more information about the State Department’s alert for holiday season travel.

Squaremouth’s Holiday Travel Information Center is regularly updated with relevant new information and answers to frequently asked questions related to coverage for holiday travel. This information can vary by policy and is subject to change at any time.

Don't buy after a storm is named. Once a winter storm is named by the Weather Channel, this is the cutoff for coverage. Policies purchased after that date will not cover delays, cancellations, or other losses related to that storm.

As of December 13, 2016, it is too late to buy a policy with coverage for Winter Storm Decima. Read official provider statements.

Travel insurance typically includes coverage for travel delays and cancellations due to winter weather. See what isn't covered.
