Travel insurance carriers release position statements when current events affect coverage. Once an event is considered foreseeable, new policies purchased will not cover that event. This is most common when hurricanes and tropical storms are named, they are considered foreseeable. The following is a statement from CSA on Tropical Storm Danielle.
Tropical Storm Danielle
In the central Atlantic Ocean, Tropical Depression Six has become Tropical Storm Danielle. The National Hurricane Center says the storm has maximum sustained winds near 60 mph, and could become a hurricane by Tuesday night. Forecasters predict the storm will move northwest toward Bermuda, but posed no threat to land. 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 August 22, 2010.
