Winter storm Juno has the potential to disrupt travel throughout the northeast and New England. RoamRight urges travelers to confirm travel plans before they leave home, and take necessary precautions regarding travel in potential blizzard conditions.

  • A cancellation of your trip if your arrival on the trip is delayed and causes you to lose 50% or more of the scheduled trip duration due to the reasons covered under the trip delay benefit.

Note – Reimbursement is subject to airline change and cancellation penalties during weather event.

Global Alert, MH Ross, TravelSafe

Released: 1/26/2015

With the predicted blizzard approaching, travel plans for persons traveling through airports along the northeastern seaboard (i.e. New York, Philadelphia, Boston, etc.)  may be disrupted beginning Monday, January 26, 2015.  While many travel suppliers and airlines are trying to reroute and/or reprotect travelers on alternate flights, some delays and/or cancellations are inevitable.

We receive many questions regarding what may or may not be covered in weather-related situations.  Following are some general guidelines – subject to the provisions and limits specific to your plan – regarding the various coverages available:

Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption or Missed Connection – Generally, if your flight is delayed or canceled due to inclement weather, and there is a complete cessation of services for the number of hours (usually 12 or 24 hours) specified in your plan, you can take a an alternate flight when travel is possible and be reimbursed for the unused land or water arrangements  and any of the specified additional transportation expenses, up to the plan limit, or, If this is not feasible, you can cancel your trip.  There is no coverage if you cancel your trip based upon the possibility of a storm striking your home or trip destination, but coverage is available if your home is made uninhabitable by the storm.  Call Customer Service, and we will be happy to review your benefits and plan provisions with you.

Trip/Travel Delay – If your plan includes travel delay benefits, additional meal and accommodation expenses may be reimbursed up to the amount provided by the plan if you have left home and travel is delayed for the number of hours specified in your plan due to flight delays or cancellations.

Again, call Customer Service if you have any questions.

Allianz

Released: 1/26/2015

As of Monday, January 26, 2015, Winter Storm Juno has caused airlines to cancel thousands of flights to and from airports in the Northeast.  Allianz Global Assistance has fully staffed its Travel Operations Center and is currently assisting customers who are changing their travel plans, need travel assistance or would like to file a claim.  As always, our primary concern is for the safety and well being of our customers and we urge any customer who may need help to call us.  We are here 24/7/365 to answer questions and provide travel assistance.

Allianz Travel Insurance customers should remember these important tips:

Customers should contact their travel provider prior to canceling travel arrangements.

Many airlines and other travel suppliers are allowing customers to change their dates of travel without fees and penalties.  If the customer’s travel supplier allows them to change the dates of their trip, they may also change the dates on their travel insurance policy by visiting AllianzTravelInsurance.com or by calling the phone number on their certificate of insurance.

While traveling, customers should take their travel insurance card with them.  It includes their policy number and our toll free travel assistance phone number.  Customers should also review their Letter of Confirmation and Certificate of Insurance/Policy to learn details about their coverage.

Coverage benefits that may apply during a winter storm:

Winter Storm Juno became a known event on January 26, 2015.  Customers who purchased their travel insurance policy prior to that date, may be eligible for the following benefits:

If the customer’s Letter of Confirmation lists Travel Delay as a benefit, they may be eligible to receive reimbursement for additional out of pocket transportation, lodging or meal expenses incurred as a result of a delay by their common carrier of six or more consecutive hours (please note: this benefit has a per person, per day maximum as well as a policy maximum). Some policies also provide coverage for pre-paid, non-refundable expenses lost due to the Travel Delay and may allow customers to cancel or interrupt their trip if their delay causes them to miss more than 50% of their scheduled trip.

Customers may qualify for Trip Cancellation/Interruption benefits if their travel supplier experiences a complete cessation of services for 24 or more consecutive hours due to severe weather.

In addition, coverage for Emergency Medical/Dental expenses and Emergency Medical Transportation may be available.
