Many travel insurance policies include coverage for natural disasters, including volcanic eruptions. The Bali Volcanic Eruption and Travel Insurance Information Center explains coverage for the volcanic eruption. This resource is regularly updated by Squaremouth’s travel insurance experts with official provider position statements, answers to frequently asked questions, and more. Information is subject to change at any time.
An eruption warning for the volcano was issued on September 26, 2017. As of that date, the event is no longer considered unforeseen and any new travel insurance policies will not provide any coverage related to the eruption.
