Update: Upheaval in Honduras

Published by June 30, 2009

According to an article from eTurbo News, the president of Honduras was removed in a coup over the weekend and is currently in exile in Costa Rica.  Currently there has been no disruption of normal tourist services.  In the capital city, Tegucigalpa, there are small protests by the ousted president’s supporters, and some roadblocks have been set up near the presidential pallace.  A curfew remains in effect for the next 48 hours in Tegucigalpa.

Travel insurance can provide trip cancellation coverage in the event of a terrorist act.  However, most plans exclude political upheaval and civil unrest from coverage.  Read the fine print carefully, as political events, such as what is happening in Honduras, may not be covered.  Always refer to the certificate of insurance for details.
