Recent world events have shocked most of us with terrorist events on our doorstep and at many of our favourite holiday destinations.
Our travellers know that staying aware at all times is key to staying safe, but there are some things you can never anticipate, and a terrorist event is one of those.
In the event of a terrorist attack, our travel insurance offers limited cover:
You decide to stay and travel: If you decide to stay and travel, as long as there is no directive from the Foreign Ministry of your Country of Residence, or a similar body advising you to leave the area/to not travel to the area, your cover will continue. There is still an exclusion for events related to terrorist activity, except for your medical expenses abroad if you are unexpectedly injured due to a terrorist event.
You’re injured or die in a terrorist attack: If you bought your policy on or after 1 August 2019 and you’re injured or die in a terrorist attack, our policies may provide cover for emergency medical and dental expenses abroad. You can’t have travelled against the advice of the Foreign Ministry of your Country of Residence or a similar authority, or participated in the terrorist activity (obviously).
Our 24/7 Emergency Assistance Team can help you navigate next steps if you’re caught up in the chaos and aftermath of an attack and are trying to continue your trip.
Terrorist attacks are understandably traumatic. However, if you’re worried one might occur, or following an attack you want to travel elsewhere or return home, we may consider that to be a change of mind in the circumstances, and we won’t cover you for those costs to change your plans.
In addition, our policy does not cover:
You must also remember that if you knowingly put yourself in danger, or are aware of events that may lead to a claim, this is excluded under the policy. This means if there’s a warning of a terrorist attack or you were likely to have had knowledge there might be one, and you put yourself at risk by travelling to or staying in the vicinity of that area, then your cover may be excluded.
The policy isn’t designed to cover everything so take the time to read the terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions in the policy wording for full details, so there are no surprises if you need to use it. If you’re not sure if something is covered get in touch.
It’s essential that you get in contact with our 24/7 Emergency Assistance Team as soon as possible so that our teams can support you from the time your fall sick or get injured until the time you get home.
