Can I buy a policy for coverage related to the shooting at Fort Lauderdale Airport?

Last Updated:

Policies purchased after the shooting and subsequent airport closure will not provide any benefits related to this event.

More Detail

As of 1:00 p.m. EST on January 6, 2017, the airport shooting is no longer considered an unforeseen event. This means travel insurance policies will not provide any coverage for losses related to this event on policies purchased after this time.

Travelers looking for coverage unrelated to this event, but concerned about travel in the future, can purchase a travel insurance policy up until the day before their departure.

Coverage is subject to change at any time as the investigation into the shooting continues and more information is released.

This information may vary based on the travel insurance policy. If you have questions about a specific policy, please contact us directly at 800-240-0369. Our customer service representatives are available 24/7 and are delighted to help.
