Statement from HTH Worldwide on the Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico

Published by May 3, 2010

Travel insurance carriers release position statements when current events affect coverage.  The following is a position statement from HTH Worldwide on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

HTH Worldwide’s Travel Protection policies do not offer protection against effects of an oil spill.  It is possible that if customers were on a Common Carrier in the Gulf of Mexico at the time of the event, and the event caused them to be delayed on their trip, there may be some coverage available depending on their circumstances and specific policy purchased.  However, this would only apply to those customers who were insured and traveling at the time of the event.  As always, customers are strongly encouraged to refer to their specific Certificate of Insurance or Insurance Policy for details regarding their available coverage, and to contact our Customer Service Department with any questions.
