Last Updated:

What you need to know about your APRIL policy:
APRIL policies purchased on or prior to November 13, 2015, at approximately 3:00 p.m. ET, may cover Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris provided that the covered insured and trip meet the policy provisions. 

APRIL policies that include “terrorist attack” for Trip Cancellation or Trip Interruption may cover the event. The coverage under these benefits typically reads:

  • If within 7 days of Your departure, a politically motivated Terrorist Attack occurs within 50 miles of a City listed on Your itinerary. The Terrorist Attack must occur on or after the Effective Date of Your Trip Cancellation Coverage.

Please note:

  • Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption benefits are not payable under any APRIL policies purchased after 3PM ET on November 13 since the event is no longer unforeseen. This guideline applies only to new policies that are effective on or after the event, and covering travel during such time. It does not apply to new policies that cover travel after the event has passed.

Please refer to your policy’s General Terms & Conditions for specific coverage details or contact us with your coverage questions.
