Planning to travel during peak hurricane season? What does hurricane season mean for anyone planning to travel from June 1 through the end of November? Some years there are huge and widespread impacts on travelers and destinations, with long lasting effects for residents of locations impacted by a hurricane. Other years, hurricane season is mild for the next few months?
No matter when you're traveling, It’s a good idea to prepare yourself and be informed about anything that could impact your travel plans, and this is especially true for Liaison Travel Medical plans:
The trip interruption and natural disaster evacuation benefit must be arranged by Seven Corners Assist.
This coverage generally provides protection for natural disasters, including hurricanes, with three different types of benefits.
Our RoundTrip Elite plan provides trip cancellation and interruption benefits for these scenarios:
When you cancel your trip for a covered reason, benefits can be paid to reimburse you for your unused nonrefundable prepaid payments or deposits for your trip.
When you interrupt your trip, benefits can be paid up to the trip cost shown on your Summary of Benefits ID card or 150% (for RoundTrip Elite and RoundTrip Choice) of the total amount of coverage you purchased. The coverage is triggered when you interrupt your trip for a covered reason listed in the plan document.
This amount is paid to reimburse you for your unused non-refundable prepaid trip payments plus the additional transportation cost to:
a) join your trip if you must depart after your scheduled departure date or travel via alternate travel arrangements to reach your trip destination using the most direct route possible
b) rejoin your trip or transport you to your originally scheduled return destination using the most direct route possible (if you must interrupt your trip after departure).
RoundTrip Elite also includes benefits for a missed cruise or tour departure. If you are delayed for 3* or more hours due to a documented weather condition and cannot get to the departure point for your cruise or tour, we will reimburse you for additional
transportation costs to join your trip as well as accommodation and meal expenses while you are delayed, trying to join your tour or cruise.
*Time limit can vary by plan and state. Review the plan document for details.
