New York, NY, September 21, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Natural disasters are in the news on a frequent basis and their unpredictable nature means that it’s more important than ever to have non-medical travel evacuation plans.
The Evacuation Plus rider was made available last month to some of the travel health insurance
plans offered by New York International Group. This rider gives travelers more options to protect themselves against natural disasters that might occur when traveling and exploring world.
It’s a scenario that’s become all too familiar. An unexpected natural disaster hits with little warning and results in major catastrophe. A hurricane in New England. A tsunami in Japan. An earthquake in DC. Volcanic ash in Iceland. While these events may sound like a summary of plots in made-for-TV movies, they are real disasters that have happened in the past two years and each of them has left travelers stuck in a dangerous zone.
The introduction of the Evacuation Plus rider available on Patriot International travel insurance plans, offered by New York International Group, safeguards travelers against natural disasters. When asked about the rider, Doug Polifron, Director of New York International Group, said, “The possibility of an evacuation as a result of a natural disaster is a real concern for travelers, and one that’s not often budgeted for in advance. This rider gives policyholders access to a means of evacuation and frees them up to enjoy their trip without concern about how they might escape a weather-related or environmental emergency.”
Travelers who have this rider added to their Patriot International policy can enjoy protection even during predetermined severe weather cycles, such as hurricane season, provided that coverage is purchased prior to storm warnings.
