All policies offer 24-Hour Emergency Assistance, which can help affected travelers. Travel insurance can also provide coverage under the Emergency Medical and Medical Evacuation benefits if you were injured in the attack.
Medical Evacuation provides coverage for necessary medical transportation to the nearest suitable medical facility, while Emergency Medical provides reimbursement for the cost of necessary medical treatment.
If the Nice attack meets your policy’s definition of a terrorist attack, you may be covered to end your trip and return home under your policy’s Trip Interruption benefit. Trip Interruption provides reimbursement for unused, prepaid travel arrangements as well as transportation to return home.
You may also be covered under your policy’s Trip Delay benefit if your flight out of Nice is delayed for longer than 12-48 hours. This benefit can provide coverage for unused, prepaid travel arrangements, as well as reasonable meals and accommodations during your delay.
If you are in need of immediate assistance, contact your travel insurance provider’s Emergency Assistance number listed on your policy certificate or the local emergency crisis number in Nice at +33 8 20 26 06 06.
