You can still buy travel insurance for an upcoming trip to Germany, but it will not include coverage for the Dec. 19 Christmas market attack in Berlin.
Unfortunately, travelers who did not have a policy before December 19, 2016, cannot buy travel insurance now to cancel their upcoming Berlin trip because of the recent attack.
If you are looking to buy a policy for your upcoming trip to Berlin, read through the policy’s Terrorism coverage carefully before purchasing. Some policies will not cover a terrorist attack if another act of terrorism recently occurred in the same city within the past 30 or 90 days.
This information is time sensitive and may change or vary based on the travel insurance policy. If you have questions about a specific policy, please contact us directly. Squaremouth’s team of licensed travel insurance experts is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by chat and by phone at 1-800-240-0369.
