Protection for Adverse Weather

Travel insurance policies, including those used to coverage flights and cruises, provide varying degrees of coverage for weather related losses.

Weather Coverage Comparison Chart

Many travel insurance policies will cover adverse weather conditions that cause you to cancel, delay, or interrupt your trip or cruise. 

Many have specific requirements that have to be met in order for coverage to apply. As an example many policies require the airline to cease operations for at least 24 consecutive hours before they will cover a cancellation. Use our weather related coverage chart to help you determine which plan would best cover your trip when it comes to weather related delays or cancellations. Note that this chart is intended for general information and as always specific policy provisions apply
