Released: 3/07/2014

On February 28, 2014, the Department of State warns “U.S. citizens to defer all non-essential travel to Ukraine, and particularly the Crimean Peninsula, due to the potential for instability following the departure of former President Yanukovych and the establishment of a new government. Groups have staged protests, set up roadblocks, and occupied government buildings in several cities throughout Ukraine since November 2013. All U.S. citizens in Ukraine, and those considering travel to Ukraine, should evaluate their personal security situation in light of political instability and the possibility of violence.” For current travel warnings please visit http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/alertswarnings.html

iTravelInsured® travel insurance plans do not provide trip cancellation or interruption coverage for a “Terrorist Incident” for travel to the Ukraine if the policy were purchased after February 28, 2014, the date the warnings was issued. This exclusion would remain in effect until the travel warning is lifted by the U.S. Department of state. War (whether declared or undeclared), acts of war, military duty (unless specifically covered) or voluntary participation in a Civil Disorder or unrest is excluded.

iTravelInsured® strongly suggest travelers read their travel insurance certificate of coverage to fully understand the terms and conditions of the travel insurance plan purchased.
