  • Short Term Travel insurance Comes In Handy During Hurricanes

    Filed Under: Blogging
It is that time of year - a hurricane is projected to hit, and the impact will be felt not only residents in the area, but also by travelers. The impact felt by travelers in these types of situations is often overlooked, but it is very real, as losing the money you put towards plane tickets, hotel accomodations, and other items can be quite expensive. Is there any way to salvage your investment? Thankfully there is hope, and it comes in the form of short term travel insurance.

The hurricane in question is Hurricane Irene. This hurricane was being classified as a Category 3 hurricane and has now been downgraded to a Category 2 hurricane, But that does not mean it cannot or will not cause significant damage. A Category 2 hurricane can still deliver winds in excess of 110 miles per hour, creating devastation for homeowners and business owners in the effected area, and potentially creating havoc for anyone traveling in or out of the affected region.

The East Coast of the United States is the area set to be hit by Irene.New York, Boston, and Philadelphia are all in the path of the storm, and because these are highly-populated, tightly-packed areas, the potential for damage is incredibly high. Additionally, those cities are major international travel hubs, which will leave many traveler stranded and also out of significant travel investments.

By purchasing short term travel insurance for trips you can help protect the money you invest on plane tickets, hotel accommodations, event tickets, and other travel items. This type of insurance policy offers superior coverage when unforeseen events arise, providing you with peace of mind so that while you cannot control the effects of a weather problem like this, you can at least guard your finances.
