Before you book
Check your credit cards for travel-related benefits that will cover weather-related events, and use the one that has the best protection to book your trip, said Sara Rathner, credit card expert at NerdWallet.
Several credit cards, including Chase Sapphire Preferred and Chase Sapphire Reserve, offer insurance for trips canceled or affected by severe weather. You can also receive reimbursement for costs associated with a trip delayed by weather, such as hotel stays. Otherwise, you’ll pay out of pocket, with no chance at reimbursement. “If an airline cancels due to weather, the hotel cost is on you,” Rathner said. NerdWallet has a comparison of travel cards and coverage at nerdwallet.com/travel-miles-credit-cards. You can also find comparisons at InsureMyTrip, QuoteWright and SquareMouth.
