When should I purchase a policy to have coverage for a terrorist attack?

Last Updated:

Short Answer

If you are concerned about a terrorist attack affecting your travel plans, we recommend that you purchase a travel insurance policy as soon as possible.

More Details

Travel insurance must be purchased prior to any terrorist attack in order for you to have coverage related to that event.

Most travel insurance providers on Squaremouth will exclude coverage for claims related to terrorism if an attack has occurred in a city on your itinerary in a specified period before your policy’s effective date, usually 30 to 90 days.

Please visit our Terrorism and Travel Insurance Information Center for up-to-date provider position statements, travel warnings and breaking news.

This information can vary based on the travel insurance policy. Please review the policy certificate to verify coverage.
