Travel insurance carriers release position statements when current events impact coverage. With natural disasters like tropical storms and hurricanes, many plans will not cover a storm if the policy is purchased after the storm is named. The following is a position statement from CSA Travel Protection on Topical Storm Bonnie.
Tropical Storm Bonnie
2010’s Tropical Depression Three is now Tropical Storm Bonnie, with sustained winds of 40 mph. Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center believe landfall will be after noon on Sunday, July 25, somewhere between east Texas and the Alabama Coast. Certain CSA Travel Protection plans offer coverage for some effects of adverse weather and natural disasters. 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 July 22, 2010. Please contact CSA Travel Protection with questions.
