How much is travel insurance?
The price of the policy depends on the amount of protection.
There are several types of policies and plans in case an unforeseen event happens.
Most insurance policies must be purchased 24 hours prior to when the hurricane has been named. And if you purchase the hurricane insurance and if the storm directly affects your travel arrangements or accommodations, most plans entitled people to trip cancellation or trip interruption benefits.
On the other hand, if you choose to cancel a trip based on what you think might happen that would be considered a matter of choice, not a direct loss to your plans.
Purchasing hurricane travel insurance is not automatically added to a cruise, flight and vacation packages. So, when buying an insurance policy, read the terms carefully before booking your trip.
