Can I still buy a travel insurance policy for my trip to Istanbul after the Ataturk Airport terrorist attack?

Last Updated:

You can still buy a travel insurance policy for a future trip to Istanbul.

Travel insurance is no longer available to provide coverage related to the June 28 terrorist attack in Istanbul, but many policies will provide coverage for future attacks.

If you are looking to purchase a policy for travel to Istanbul within the next three months, look closely at the policy’s Terrorism coverage before you buy it. Some policies do not cover a terrorist attack if a prior attack has occurred in the same city within a certain period of time, usually 30-90 days.
