Can I cancel my trip to Orlando because of the shooting?

Last Updated:

You may be covered to cancel your trip to Orlando due to the June 12 terrorist attack if your travel insurance policy includes Terrorism coverage.

Most travel insurance policies include Terrorism coverage for both foreign and domestic terrorist attacks. Policies vary in their other requirements to cancel your trip under the Terrorism benefit.

Typically, your departure date must be within 7-30 days of the terrorist attack, and you must be visiting the city in which the attack occurred or a place within 50-100 miles of that city.

If you are planning to visit Orlando or a nearby city within this time frame from the June 12 terror attack, you may be able to cover your trip and be reimbursed for your prepaid, nonrefundable trip expenses.

You must have purchased your policy before June 12, 2016, in order to be eligible for Terrorism coverage related to the Orlando terrorist attack.
