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. The most common example of an event becoming foreseeable is when a hurricane or tropical storm is named. After the storm is named, it is too late to purchase a new policy that will cover the named storm. The following is a statement from CSA on Tropical Storm Cindy.
Tropical Storm Cindy
The 3rd named storm of the 2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season, Tropical Storm Cindy, has formed in the central Atlantic Ocean. The U.S. National Hurricane Center predicts that Cindy will continue to move away from the U.S., and poses no threat to land at this time. 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 20, 2011. Please contact CSA Travel Protection with questions.
