  • Hurricane Season is On the Way - Do You Have International Student Travel Insurance?

    Filed Under: Health Insurance
While the early part of the summer brings exciting vacation plans for many travelers, it also brings about hurricane season in many areas. If you are planning to travel out of your country and into a coastal area this summer, make certain you have protected your financial investment in that trip by purchasing international student travel insurance with trip cancellation protection.

Hurricane season officially begins later this week, with areas like the U.S. Gulf Coast projected to get hit first. Many experts believe that the hurricanes will be especially powerful this year. That is no small feat, as several devastating hurricanes have been felt around the world in recent years.

Therefore, if you are planning a trip to an area that is susceptible to hurricanes, you will want to add international student travel insurance to your list of preparations. And be sure that coverage includes trip cancellation coverage.

This way, if storms descend upon the country you are planning to visit, or you are simply uncomfortable going on your trip because of the potential of bad weather, you can cancel your trip without losing your entire investment. Traveling internationally is not cheap, and with airlines and hotels becoming increasingly more restrictive about being able to cancel or re-schedule bookings, trip cancellation insurance is a valuable asset to have in hand.
