Check Your Cover As Hurricane Looms!

Multitrip.com, Ireland's No 1 Travel Insurance provider, is warning all holidaymakers to check their travel cover as the Atlantic's most powerful hurricane looms over the Caribbean and the USA.

Hurricane Irma, the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricane in recorded history, has made first landfall in the islands of the north-east Caribbean.

The category 5 storm is due to hit Florida this weekend and it has both airlines and local authorities on high alert.

Multitrip.com is advising all travellers to make sure they have included ‘Travel Disruption Cover’ with their travel insurance policy to ensure they are covered for adverse weather conditions and airline cancellations.

Managing Director Ciaran Mulligan said: “Anyone travelling soon should make sure they have included 'Travel Disruption Cover' now as there will be no cover in place if they take out the cover these adverse weather conditions close airspace.  ‘Travel Disruption Cover’ is available to add to all Multitrip.com customers including existing policies, but cover will only be effective seven days after it is added so it is important to upgrade/book your policy as soon as possible.”

'Travel Disruption Cover' also offers extended cover under delayed departure, missed departure and accommodation sections, should your flight be cancelled or delayed.

'Travel Disruption Cover' will provide the following cover in the event of Adverse Weather Conditions:

  • If your flight is cancelled or delayed for more than 12 hours it covers additional accommodation and travel costs up to €1,000.
  • If your flight is cancelled or delayed for more than 12 hours then you can claim back up to €1,000 for irrecoverable unused travel and accommodation costs should you cancel.
  • Claim back up to €1,000 for accommodation if you have to be moved from your current location or cut your trip short because of flood, earthquake, volcanic eruption etc.
  • Covers cancellation or curtailment charges should the Foreign & Commonwealth Office or World Health Organisation advise against travel to the country or specific area you are travelling to.
  • Gives you control of the situation and the added security that you have sufficient cover should an airline cancel, delay or redirect your flight after take-off.
