Can I buy a policy now to cover my trip to Paris?

Last Updated:

If you are looking for coverage for a future trip, yes, you can purchase a travel insurance policy to cover a trip to Paris. However, as the terrorist attacks on November 13th have already occurred and are no longer considered unforeseen, typically travel insurance will not provide coverage for losses related to these recent attacks.

If you are looking for coverage for the events on the 13th, unfortunately, it is too late to purchase a policy, as the attacks are no longer considered unforeseen. 

This information is time sensitive and may change as events unfold. Please check back for updated FAQs and provider position statements.

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!
