Effective immediately, TravelSafe Insurance has helped alleviate the fear of hurricanes by offering extended protection on their popular TravelSafe Vacation, Custom and Premier plans. Travelers now have the option of canceling in the 24 hour period before their scheduled departure date, in the event of a hurricane warning issued by the NOAA National Hurricane Center. To be eligible for this coverage, customers must have their policy in effect at least 15 days prior to the cancellation.

“People have been desperate for coverage that allows them to make the decision to cancel and still be covered, and now they can.”, says Scott Perfetto, President of Wyomissing PA-based TravelSafe Insurance, a division of the Chester Perfetto Agency. Last year, TravelSafe broke new ground by offering the industry’s first “Cancel For Any Reason” coverage, which has been a huge success. “We want to give the consumer as much as we can at the lowest possible cost, and these new extended coverages are a great example.”, says Perfetto.

TravelSafe’s extended coverages also include cancellation for certain mental, nervous or psychological disorders, cancellation in the event the traveler’s workplace is made uninhabitable due to burglary, fire, flood vandalism or natural disaster, and several extended benefits to cover airline change, re-issue or re-bank fees associated with frequent flyer tickets. Additionally, coverage is now provided for Care Givers employed for the purpose of providing assistance with activities of daily living to the traveler or to his or her immediate family member who has a physical or mental impairment.

Travel Insurance is a booming, competitive industry which offers the consumer many coverage options. TravelSafe, in business since 1971, is committed to quality customer service and offers travelers the most comprehensive coverage in the industry at some of the most competitive rates.
