HURRICANE SEASON 2006: DON’T LET IT BLOW YOUR SUMMER VACATION!

Protect Planned Trips Now with Travel Insurance

Warwick, RI, May 10, 2006— Experts from NOAA’s National Hurricane Center predict  that Hurricane Season 2006 –a 6-month period that begins June 1–will be another very active one.  But don’t let the weather threaten your upcoming vacation plans.  With a little advance planning and preparation, your travels can be worry-free.

“No matter where you travel to or when,  travel insurance is a prudent investment that provides peace-of-mind protection against numerous travel-related risks,” explains Peter J. Evans, Executive Vice President of InsureMyTrip.com.  Trip Cancellation insurance is the best way to protect your travel investment against unforeseen events such as hurricanes and other natural disasters and the problems they can cause including:

  • total cessation of travel
  • travel delay due to airport closures and suspended airline operations
  • destinations made uninhabitable

Additionally, Trip Cancellation Package Policies also provide coverage for trip interruption, baggage, medical and medical evacuation.

Advance planning is key as trip cancellation protection is based on the occurrence of unforeseen events. “That means, once a tropical storm or hurricane is identified in your destination area, you will not be able to secure coverage for trip cancellation and travel delay due to that particular storm.  Another very important reason to plan ahead is to maximize the complete complement of benefits offered by trip cancellation policies,” states Evans.  The majority of these policies provide a grace period from 7 to 21 days of your initial trip deposit, that when purchased in this time frame, include financial default protection and pre-existing medical conditions.”
