ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Summer vacation may be the next victim of this season's winter weather. Harsh winter storms have forced schools to close for more days than expected. As a result, schools are considering extending the school year into summer months to compensate for missed days. This is a growing concern among parents who have already made summer travel plans. According to Squaremouth, America's fastest growing travel insurance comparison site, travel insurance may be able to help those whose summer vacation is jeopardized due to winter weather.
Some travel insurance policies will cover travelers who cancel a trip because of the extended school year, as long as the policy is purchased before the extension is officially announced. With about a month left of winter, many schools have yet to make this announcement, meaning there is still time for travelers to purchase a policy.
Parents who are considering purchasing a travel insurance policy should first contact their school to confirm that no official extension has been announced. "As school districts vary, we look at the date the school district announces school will be extended," explains Kathy Townend of CSA Travel Protection. Policies purchased after that date will not qualify for this cancellation benefit.
RoamRight's Linda Fallon adds that coverage is not limited to the school year extending into summertime, "Coverage also applies if spring break is cancelled, or any other planned school holiday is revoked."
Students may be enjoying days off now, but with more winter storms on the horizon, the possibility of a delayed start to summer is becoming more and more real. Squaremouth contacted its travel insurance providers to confirm which companies offer this cancellation benefit.
