My flight was diverted because of the Brussels attacks, but I wish to stay at my new destination. What coverage is available?

Last Updated:

If your flight to Brussels is rerouted and you choose to stay in your new destination rather than continue on to Brussels, Trip Interruption can provide coverage for your prepaid and unused travel expenses in Brussels.

Your policy must include Terrorism coverage and you must meet the requirements for this coverage. No coverage will be provided for any additional expenses incurred in the new destination.
