CSA Travel Protection’s Statement on Tropical Storms Nadine and Kristy

Last Updated:

Travel insurance providers often release position statements to identify how coverage applies to current events, most commonly when tropical storms are named. Once a tropical storm is named, travelers can no longer purchase coverage for that storm. The following are position statements from the travel insurance provider, CSA:
