Hurricane Matthew: Flight Delays And Cancellations Up, Travel Insurance No Longer Available #HurricaneMatthew
Travel insurance comparison site InsureMyTrip reports a 20 percent jump today in calls from travelers impacted by Hurricane Matthew. Licensed travel insurance agents say concerned travelers are seeking the following:
Information on how to cancel an upcoming trip
Clarification on how travel insurance covers airline delays and cancellations
Clarification on how travel insurance covers hurricanes
Advice on making a travel insurance purchase
Note: It is too late for travelers to buy travel insurance coverage to cover losses related to Hurricane Matthew. Those concerned about hurricanes should always purchase travel insurance early. Once a storm starts forming, it's considered a foreseeable event and insurance coverage will no longer be available for purchase to cover losses related to that storm.
