CSA Travel Protection’s Statement on Tropical Storm Chris

Last Updated:

Travel insurance providers release position statements when current events affect coverage. Once an event is considered foreseeable, new policies purchased will not cover that event. The most common example of an event becoming foreseeable is when a hurricane or tropical storm is named.  After the storm is named, it is too late to purchase a new policy that will be covered for cancellation reasons.

Tropical Storm Chris
Tropical Storm Chris formed today off the coast of Newfoundland in the Atlantic Ocean.  Forecasters do not expect the storm to pose a threat to land, and anticipate the storm will weaken Wednesday night or Thursday.  Customers are strongly encouraged to read their Certificate of Insurance or Insurance Policy for details regarding their available coverage.  For plans that do offer coverage for adverse weather and natural disasters, please note that there is no coverage for this specific storm under any plans purchased on or after June 19th, 2012.  Please contact CSA Travel Protection with questions.
