A Little Known Travel Insurance Benefit Could Be A Big Help, Advises Squaremouth

Last Updated:

ST. PETE BEACH, FL June 9, 2011 – A little known benefit in most travel insurance policies could really make a difference, says, a site for comparing and purchasing travel insurance. “If a traveler’s home is ruined by a tornado, their travel insurance policy may cover them to cancel their trip or come home early and receive reimbursement,” says Sarah Byrne, Marketing Manager at Squaremouth.

Although many travelers would cut a trip short if they find out something bad happened to their home, almost none would make a travel insurance claim because they didn’t know they could. Having the option the file a claim would give travelers the chance to get back unused trip expenses, as well as the costs of flights to get home.

“This provides extra protection and peace of mind that unforeseen expenses are covered not just if something happens on the trip, but also at home while they are away,” says Kathy Townend, Marketing Manager at CSA Travel Protection.

There are travel insurance policies that offer more protection than other policies in this situation. For the best coverage, travelers should avoid policies that have the ten day time-frame limitation.
Policies with the limitation only cover travelers if their homes are ruined within ten days of traveling. As a result, if a traveler’s home is ruined while they are traveling, they will not be covered to come home early and receive reimbursement.
