Coverage Provided for Hurricanes, Layoffs, Job Transfers, Accidents


Miami, FL, June 23, 2009—Now that hurricane season has officially started,, the online international lodging directory, has announced some good news for vacationers.  Rentalo has teamed up with Travel Guard, a leading travel insurance provider, to offer clients two comprehensive vacation rental insurance plans, one of which even covers severe weather and hurricanes.  The fact that it covers employer terminations and layoffs is also comforting, given the current state of the economy.


Among the coverage provided by Plan #1, the Vacation Rental Protection Plan, is trip cancellation or interruption due to:

  • Named hurricanes.
  • Severe weather.
  • Employer terminations.
  • Layoffs or job transfers.
  • Jury duty.
  • Military duty.

The plan also covers trip delays, lost baggage, baggage delays, medical expenses, emergency medical transportation and other services.


But what if the kids spill ketchup on the carpet or even toss a baseball through a window? Plan #2, the Accidental Damage Rental Insurance Plan, which protects travelers and property owners, provides coverage if a rental property or its contents are damaged, and it may preclude having to pay a security deposit.


"Offering travel insurance through Travel Guard is a natural extension as we continue to provide users with the travel resources that make their vacations safe, convenient and rewarding," says Rentalo CEO, Alfredo Purriños."
