Can I still buy a travel insurance policy for a future trip to Istanbul?

Last Updated:

Travelers can still purchase a travel insurance policy for a future trip to Istanbul. Many policies may still provide coverage for future unforeseen terrorist attacks.

As of March 19, 2016, this event is no longer considered unforeseen and policies purchased on or after this date will not provide terrorism coverage for losses related to the March 19 suicide bombing in Istanbul.

Some policies do not provide terrorism coverage if a prior terrorist attack occurred within the past 90 days in the same city, such as the Istanbul suicide bombing in Istanbul on January 12.
