Istanbul Attack: June 2016

On June 28, 2016, the Ataturk Airport in Istanbul was attacked, resulting in many deaths and injuries. Our sympathies go out to those who have been impacted by this terrible violence.

This attack became a known event on June 28, 2016. Customers who purchased their travel insurance policy prior to that date may be eligible for coverage under their trip cancellation or trip interruption benefits, as described below. 

Customers who are scheduled to travel to Istanbul within the next 30 days, or are already in Istanbul, should review their travel insurance policy to determine what coverage they may have related to terrorism at their destination. Allianz Travel Insurance may provide coverage for trip cancellation when there is a terrorist event at the customer's destination within 30 days of the day they are scheduled to arrive, or for interruption if a terrorist event occurs while they are there.  To qualify for coverage, there must not have been a terrorist event at that destination in the 30 days prior to the date the customer’s plan became effective. 

Customers who have questions can refer to their policy or call us at the number on their policy. We are here 24/7/365 to answer questions and provide travel assistance.
