Once you’ve heard about a storm that may impact your trip, it’s probably too late to get coverage. This year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration projects up to 17 named storms, with 5-9 expected to become hurricanes.
What if I Get Stranded at the Airport?
If severe weather strands you at the airport for 3-12 hours, you can be covered by travel insurance for meals and hotel accommodations until you are able to get to your destination. If the delay exceeds 12 hours, you may be covered to cancel your trip altogether.

What if a Hurricane Destroys My Destination?
Imagine arriving at your destination, only to find your hotel uninhabitable. If this happens and you need to cancel your trip, you could be reimbursed for all of your unused trip expenses.
With another active hurricane season expected, Squaremouth recommends getting coverage as far ahead of your trip as possible. If weather is a primary concern, consider a policy with coverage that kicks in after a 3-hour delay.
Squaremouth’s Hurricane and Travel Insurance Information Center will be updated regularly throughout hurricane season with information about travel insurance coverage as storms hit.
Squaremouth compares travel insurance policies from every major travel insurance provider in the United States. Using Squaremouth’s comparison engine and third-party customer reviews, travelers can research and compare insurance products side-by-side. More information can be found at www.squaremouth.com
