What travel insurance will allow me to cancel if I’m afraid a terrorist attack may occur?

Last Updated:

Only a policy that includes the Cancel For Any Reason upgrade will cover you to cancel due to fear of a potential terrorist attack.

The Cancel For Any Reason upgrade allows you to cancel for reasons not typically covered in standard policies, but can increase your premium by up to 40%. This upgrade is only available within 14-30 days of your initial trip booking, and you must insure your 100% of your total trip cost. Cancel For Any Reason will only reimburse up to 75% of the total trip cost and requires that you cancel your trip at least 2-3 days prior to your scheduled departure date.

Although no standard insurance policies cover cancellation due to fear of terrorism, they may offer terrorism coverage to cancel your trip if a terrorist attack occurs at your destination.
