Due to danger posed by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria, Global Affairs Canada or Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) advises to avoid all travel to Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, the British Virgin Islands, Cuba, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Puerto Rico, Saint Martin, Saint-Barthélemy, Sint Maarten, Turks and Caicos and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and to avoid non-essential travel to the Bahamas, Dominica, Florida Keys, Montserrat, Naples and Saint Kitts and Nevis.
How does TuGo Travel Insurance protect those who were planning to travel from, to or through the Caribbean or Florida Keys?
Travellers may be covered when Global Affairs Canada or PHAC has issued a travel advisory which recommends to “Avoid all travel” or “Avoid non-essential travel” to the travel destination. The advisory must be issued after the trip was booked and after the policy was purchased.
For Trip Cancellation, the travel advisory must still be in place at the time of scheduled departure. For Trip Interruption the travel advisory must be issued after departure and during the scheduled travel dates.
If travellers are making changes to their travel plans, they should contact their airline providers before Claims at TuGo.
