BIBA urges travellers to arrange insurance with terrorism cover


The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) says that British do become victims of terrorism abroad, so travel insurance must include it. The level of terrorism cover offered does vary from provider to provider


Graeme Trudgill of BIBA says, “We are very pleased that many travel insurers, over the last four years, have agreed to include terrorism cover in their travel insurance policy wordings.  However we estimate that about a third of policies still do not have any terrorism protection at all.  We urge insurers to include this cover as soon as possible because travellers will rely on their insurer helping them if they are caught in a terrorism incident abroad.”
