Unfortunately, with so many horrific attacks occurring worldwide, it has caused some travelers to rethink their plans, as well as question if and when they will be covered by travel protection. In doing so it’s important to understand that while each and every act of violence is senseless and appalling, not every attack is considered to be terrorism. In order for an attack to be considered terrorism, The U.S. State Department must deem an event a terrorist attack. Once the U.S. State Department takes this position on an attack, then terrorism coverage will become effective.
How will a travel protection plan help?
If an incident is named by the U.S State Department (you can find the list here), Travel Insured’s Worldwide Trip Protector Plus, Worldwide Trip Protector, and Worldwide Trip Protector Lite offers Terrorism coverage within the Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption or Trip Delay benefits. The plans may provide coverage when…
- The incident occurred in a city listed on your itinerary.
- The incident occurred within 30 days of your scheduled departure date.
- The plan was purchased before the attack.
If you are curious about whether or not a specific incident has been deemed and for more information on eligible coverage, you can find Travel Insured’s Current Events page here.
Another way to protect your trip?
By investing in a plan with Cancel for Any Reason Coverage*, you are able to cancel your plans and get up to 75% of your total trip cost for any reason – as long as you decide 48 or more hours prior to scheduled departure.
