Yes, you can purchase a travel insurance policy after a terrorist attack, but the policy will not cover losses related to the attack.
Travel insurance is designed to provide coverage for unforeseen events. Once a terrorist attack has occurred, travelers can no longer purchase a policy with coverage for that particular attack.
Many policies will still provide Terrorism coverage for any future attacks that may occur at the destination. However, some policies require that there have been no recent terrorist incidents in your destination city within a specified period of time — typically 30-90 days.
This information is time sensitive and 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.
