Squaremouth informs travelers about events that are expected to have a major impact on travel. This is not a comprehensive list of all worldwide events.

Last Updated: 07/26/16

On July 22, 2016, there was a mass shooting at a mall in Munich, Germany.

The Munich Shooting and Travel Insurance Information Center details travel insurance coverage related to the shooting at a mall in Munich, Germany on July 22, 2016.

This resource is updated regularly with travel alerts, frequently asked questions, provider position statements, and other new information as the situation progresses. Information included in this database is subject to change at any time.

All policies offer 24-Hour Emergency Assistance to help travelers affected by the shooting.

This U.S. Department of State has not declared the shooting an act of terrorism, so this event does not trigger Terrorism coverage on standard travel insurance policies.
