Investing in Travel Protection for Terrorism

by Kellyn Uhelsky | Aug 17, 2016

GLASTONBURY, CT (PRWEB) AUGUST 16, 2016 - Travel Insured International, a leading travel protection provider, offers advice on how terrorist attacks could effect travel and how trips could be covered.

With the threat and act of terrorism continuing to be a prominent issue in the world, and travel alerts being named, Travel Insured international advises travelers to invest in travel protection for any destination, especially when traveling abroad.

Travel alerts named by the U. S. Department of State, warn U.S. travelers of the potential risk of terrorist attacks in specific cities, but does not mean tourists cannot travel to these locations. The alert warns travelers of threats at major events, tourist sites, restaurants, busy commercial and transportation centers, and simply means extra precautions should be taken. Purchasing travel protection, can help protect your travel investments and help keep you safe along the way.

What is if Terrorist Attack occurs that effects my trip?

Once the U.S. Department of State announces a terrorist attack has occurred, it confirms to travelers that coverage against politically-motivated terrorist attacks may be included in plans purchased under the company's Worldwide Trip Protector brand including Worldwide Trip Protector Plus, Worldwide Trip Protector, Worldwide Trip Protector Lite, and Airline Ticket Protector.

Travel Insured plan holders who purchased coverage on or before the date of the attack, and whose itineraries include the victimized location, may be eligible for Terrorism coverage within the Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption or Trip Delay benefits.

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. Travelers are reminded that they must purchase a plan to obtain the coverage before the terrorism attack is launched. 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.

For insured travelers who purchased Cancel for Any Reason coverage, we remind you that cancellations must be made 48 or more hours prior to scheduled departure and payment is limited to 75% of the non-refundable trip cost up to the stated plan maximum limit.

Every Travel Insured plan also includes Non-Insurance Emergency Travel Assistance Services available 24/7 to help travelers whenever they are in need of assistance during their trip. Travel Insured recommends travelers purchase proper travel protection plans in case of unforeseen circumstances and to know where to go and where not to go during their travels. Travelers should monitor information provided by the U.S State Department.
