    Did anyone get travel insurance because they booked their destination wedding during hurricane season?  We are getting married in August and someone suggested it.

    If you got insurance how much was it and who did you get it through?

      I wish I could help you but I've been looking for the same info!!! I do not live in the USA so my choices of wedding insurance simply do not exist. I am afraid that a traveler insurance broker is going to charge WAY too much and that it will NOT include what it needs to!

       

      Most of the helpful info I have found here : http://www.bestdesti...-questions-here

       

      Doesn't help much if you live outside the USA, but I'll keep posted here on the search for hurricane coverage.

        One of my clients a few years ago purchased insurance for those type of things from their travel agent. August and September is a bit of a gamble and I think it does makes sense to get insurance.

         

        Good luck!

            YES..i highly recommend it..i'm an October bride...my fiance and i go to Jamaica annually and always during Hurricane Season..while i've never encountered a hurricane..i'd hate to have one mess up my trip w/o insurance..get it...its worth the peace of mind.

             

            i even recommended it for my guests..by the way, if you have guests booking on expedia..they offer very cost efficient travel insurance options now..i say GO FOR IT!

             

            good luck and happy planning!!!

              We purchased it because we're getting married in Sept. Ours ran us $114 pp (myself and fiance). What's great though is the insurance covers our hotel stay, flights and honeymoon. So in the end it was worth it in my opinion.
