What if the crash is declared terrorism?

If the Russian plane crash is deemed an act of terrorism, travelers may be covered to cancel or interrupt their trip, as long as the attack meets their policy’s specific terrorism triggers. These typically require it to have occurred within 7-30 days of the traveler’s departure, and in or near a city on their itinerary.

In the case of the Russian plane crash, travelers must have purchased their policy before October 31, the date of the crash.
