Every Friday, we characteristic a reader-submitted tip as our Journey Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Cynthia, who says:
“I discovered this out the arduous approach following Hurricane Irma. We had been imagined to fly to Spain the place I had rented an residence for per week via VRBO. I did purchase journey cancellation insurance coverage for the flight however uncared for to take action for the residence.
When Hurricane Irma made it unattainable to fly out of Miami I attempted to cancel our residence rental explaining that we couldn’t get out of Florida. No cube. The residence homeowners wouldn’t budge. Apparently, in accordance with VRBO, cancelation coverage is strictly left as much as the homeowners (and their conscience). You should learn the high quality print. Most of them will refund 100% provided that you cancel 60 days or extra upfront. Nonetheless, hurricanes don’t offer you that type of warning. So purchase the insurance coverage!
I additionally realized that though your bank card might supply some type of journey interruption/cancellation insurance coverage, it most likely doesn’t cowl conditions involving pure disasters reminiscent of earthquakes or hurricanes. So, purchaser beware.”
