Can I still buy a travel insurance policy after the Worldwide Travel Alert has been issued?

Last Updated:

Yes, you can purchase a travel insurance policy. A worldwide travel alert does not impact the availability of travel insurance coverage.

Policies purchased after the travel alert has been issued can still include terrorism coverage as long as an attack has not yet occurred at your destination. However, a policy purchased after a terrorist act has occurred would not be covered for any losses related to that event.

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!
