ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Jan. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Travelers who are away from home are unable to prepare for the looming nor'easter. While travel insurance can't protect their houses from the blizzard, it may be able to bring them home.
Squaremouth, America's fastest growing travel insurance comparison site, reveals a little-known travel insurance benefit that can help travelers whose homes are damaged by the Northeast Blizzard.
Travel Insurance Coverage if Your Home is Damaged by the Blizzard
Of the 132 policies live on squaremouth.com, 55 include Trip Cancellation coverage. Almost every one of these covers travelers whose residence becomes uninhabitable by a natural disaster, including a blizzard. This benefit can cover the cost for the traveler to return home, as well as any trip expenses that went unused because of their early return.
"Most people think travel insurance is just for those whose flights have been cancelled. In this case, it can also help travelers who are trying to get back home," explains Megan Singh, Squaremouth's Director of Marketing.
Major concerns include bursting pipes caused by freezing temperatures and collapsing roofs under pounds of snow. Those with a travel insurance policy, whose homes experience such damage, can turn to the their policy for help getting home.
