Travelers Have Insurance Option to Cover Terror Threats

Travel Insured International reports it is advising their insured clients that Trip Cancellation / Trip Interruption coverage is included in most plans when a politically-motivated terrorist attack occurs in a city on their itinerary within 30 days of scheduled departure. The Cancel for Any Reason option allows cancellation due to fear from a terrorist threat.

Commenting on the U.S. State Department's recent Europe travel alert warning of possible terrorist threats in Europe, Travel Insured reports it is confirming to travelers that coverage against politically motivated terrorist attacks is included in four plans under the company's Worldwide Trip Protector brand.

Travel Insured said it encourages travelers to continue with their travel plans to Europe while taking the prudent travel safety precautions recommended by the U.S State Department.

The plans provide Trip Cancellation or Trip Interruption coverage when a politically motivated terrorist attack occurs within the territorial limits of a city listed on the insured's travel itinerary and within 30 days of the insured's departure date.

To be eligible for coverage, an event must occur after the effective date of the insured traveler's Trip Cancellation coverage and by definition must be deemed an act of terrorism by the U.S. Government.

Travel Insured reminds travelers they must purchase a plan to obtain the coverage before the terrorism attack is launched. As with hurricane events, once an act of terrorism begins it is no longer unforeseen, and coverage is no longer available for plans purchased on or after the date when the attack was initiated.

The four Travel Insured plans that include the coverage are Worldwide Trip Protector, Worldwide Trip Protector Gold, Trip Protector Lite, and Trip Protector Lite Expanded. While including coverage against acts of terrorism, this coverage is not triggered by a threat of terrorism, or by concern that a future act of terrorism might occur.

Travelers desiring coverage against threats or fear of potential terrorism are recommended to obtain the Cancel for Any Reason option, available with either the Worldwide Trip Protector or Worldwide Trip Protector Gold plans.

Every Travel Insured plan includes Worldwide Emergency Travel Assistance, available 24/7 to help travelers. Visit
