7. WHERE IS THE RAIN MEASURED?

Measurements are taken at the closest government monitored precipitation gathering weather station. Settlement locations are often at the local commercial airport. Consult your lease terms to see where coverage would be settled for your vacation destination. It is possible that rain may occur at your vacation address, but not at the station. Conversely, it is possible for rain to occur at the station, and not at your vacation address.

Measurements are provided by third party, government owned weather stations and confirmed by AccuWeather.

Via CX Markets settlement feed we receive the station’s measurement data automatically after a day is complete. On the fourth qualifying day of rain, a decision on settlement is generally reached by noon on the next business day.

A payment for a qualify rain event is generally deposited into the broker’s account within 24 hours of the fourth qualifying rain day.

11. WHAT IF IT RAINS AT NIGHT?

Rain at night counts toward qualifying amount totals. In fact a large storm from 11PM to 1AM counts towards both days, with the rain prior to midnight counting for the previous day and the rain after midnight counting for the next day.

12. CAN TRAVELERS COVER A PORTION OF THE COST OF THE VACATION?

When purchased from a partner vacation rental site, travelers usually have the ability to protect 25%, 50%, 75%, or 100% of the rental amount.
