When filing a storm-related travel insurance claim, travelers should also do the following:
• Call or email the travel insurance company to understand the claim requirements. A specific form may be required for each benefit within a policy. For example, if a hurricane forced the traveler to cancel a trip, that traveler would then fill out a trip cancellation form—not a trip delay or trip interruption form.Any traveler filing a claim during this time will likely experience a significant delay getting it processed. To prevent additional lag time, InsureMyTrip urges affected travelers that purchased a policy before the storm being named, to contact their travel insurance company as soon as possible to start the process.

• Save all travel-related receipts and documents. While claims examiners are aware of the hurricane, documentation is still required and will be requested from travelers submitting claims.
