SAN DIEGO – [July 3, 2014] – As Hurricane Arthur threatens the U.S. eastern seaboard, CSA Travel Protection (CSA) is providing emergency travel and medical assistance services free to all U.S. travelers and their families affected by the storm.
Anyone seeking assistance services can reach the CSA assistance centers directly by calling (855) 806-1090. Free services include flight and hotel booking, medical and legal referral, traveling companion assistance, emergency cash transfer and interpretation/translation services.
In addition to free assistance services, CSA recommends travelers utilize the following resources to help them prepare for their travels during hurricane season.
