If you are an expatriate traveling in a situation like this, you will appreciate the benefits of expat travel insurance.

Major cities set to be affected by this hurricane include New York, Philadelphia, and Boston. New York is home to two major international airports - LaGuardia and JFK. Philadelphia is home to Philadelphia International Airport, and in Boston is home to Logan International Airport. There are countless travelers flying in and out of these airports each and every day.

The affected area may stretch all the way down to Maryland, as that state's governor has already declared a state of emergency.Additionally, the slow-moving nature of the storm has weather experts predicting the storm could linger longer, which would heighten the damage,

If you are an expat traveling internationally in these areas, you will not be able to avoid those travel delays. But you can minimize their financial impact by purchasing an expat travel insurance policy. In the event a travel delay or cancellation occurs, this unique policy will help reimburse the money you spent on plane tickets, hotel rooms, and many other components of your travel itinerary. The potential savings far outweigh the nominal investment, making this a grat buy for any expat traveler.
