The France Church Attack and Travel Insurance Information Center details travel insurance coverage related to the attack at a church in Normandy, France, on July 26, 2016.

Policyholders should check with their provider, or view the latest provider position statements, to see if the attack in Normandy meets their policy’s definition of a terrorist event.
