BE PATIENT. Due to the large area of impact with storm Ian, there will be a large influx of claims all at one time. The claims team manager has enlisted "all hands on deck" for this event and has dozens of dedicated personnel at work on Ian claims. These personnel are located in numerous places around the country.
REMINDER! TRAVELERS HAVE INTERRUPTION & DELAY BENEFITS.
- Remind your travelers that they can still take part of their trip if the destination is accessible. While we are sad for the places that have sustained extensive damage, some destinations have sustained little or no damage.
- Travelers will be reimbursed for the portion of their trip impacted due to flight delays, mandatory evacuations, trip interruptions or temporary inaccessibility. For example, a traveler who has a 7 day trip protected and was delayed 36 hours can receive reimbursement for two sevenths of the trip amount.
