If you’re traveling during storm season, you need to buy insurance right when you buy a vacation package or book your trip, Frommer says. And if you don’t have it yet, get some “ASAP,” Frommer says. Once a major storm is spotted and named, you can’t get insurance.
It’s not a good idea to buy your insurance directly from the travel site or cruise company, Frommer says. Not only could you end up spending too much, if the tour operator or travel site goes out of business, your insurance policy may be compromised.
Instead, Frommer recommends checking out insurance marketplaces like Squaremouth, Travelinsurance.com and insuremytrip.com “These sites only work with legitimate travel insurance companies,” Frommer says, so you can be sure you’re getting a good deal from a quality provider.
Another perk of a marketplace: customized service. “You’ll be able to ask an expert all your questions and purchase the insurance policy that works best for you,” Uger says.
