What is Terrorism?

Terrorism reimburses travelers who need to cancel or interrupt their trip due to a terrorist attack.

Many policies include Terrorism coverage within the Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption benefits. The Terrorism travel insurance benefit can cover a traveler to cancel their trip due to a terrorist attack, as long as they purchased a policy before the attack occurred.

In order to be eligible for coverage, the following conditions typically must be met:


  • The attack typically must be deemed an act of terrorism by the U.S. Department of State, or a local government where the attack occurred

  • The attack must occur in or near a city listed on a traveler’s itinerary

  • The attack must occur within 7-30 days of a traveler’s scheduled arrival

  • There have been no other terrorist incidents in the same city within a specified period of time

Please be aware that coverage and eligibility requirements for this benefit differ by policy. The tables below show the providers that offer Terrorism coverage.
