Snowstorms, ice storms, and other severe weather conditions, may frequently disrupt travel plans during the winter months.
It is important to confirm travel arrangements and monitor weather conditions before departure. Airlines frequently allow changes to travel plans without a change fee. RBC Insurance suggests contacting the airline before departing for the airport to learn about potential delays and rescheduling options. Coverage is provided for the delay of a scheduled carrier, missed connection or problems getting to the airport on time.
Trip Cancellation/Interruption insurance coverage (included in a Package or stand-alone) must be purchased prior to the time that the severe winter storm warning or watch is issued. Once the severe winter weather warning or watch has been forecasted, Trip Cancellation and Interruption losses resulting from the winter storm are excluded from the coverage of the policy.
