    With an extremely active hurricane season approaching, travelers should know how to avoid potentially devastating financial losses when storms disrupt travel plans.
    Squaremouth, America's fastest growing travel insurance comparison site, has released these five quick tips for purchasing travel insurance coverage during hurricane season.

    1 - All policies are different
    Not all travel insurance policies cover losses associated with hurricanes. When selecting a policy, look for hurricane and weather coverage under the Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption benefits. Pay attention to the different ways these benefits are defined. Some may simply cover inclement weather that disrupts travel arrangements. Others may only provide coverage if travel delays last at least 48 hours.

    2 - Insurance won't cover what "could" happen
    A hurricane must directly affect travel arrangements for claims to be paid. Travelers won't be able to claim based on their worries or fears that something bad might happen. Similarly, there would be no grounds for cancellation.

    3 - Don't wait until it's too late to buy
    If a storm has already been named, it's too late to purchase a policy. One of the most important elements of hurricane and weather coverage is when you buy. Nearly every travel insurance provider requires that travelers purchase a policy before a storm is named to be covered for Trip Cancellation.
