Paris: November 2015

On November 13, 2015, suspected terrorists attacked multiple sites in Paris. Our sympathies go out to those who have been impacted by this terrible violence.

This attack became a known event on November 13, 2015. 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 planning to travel to Paris within the next 30 days 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 and interruption when there is a terrorist event at the customer's destination within 30 days of the day they are scheduled to arrive. Customers who have this coverage included in their policy and are scheduled to arrive in Paris within 30 days of Friday’s attacks may cancel their trip and receive payment for their non-refundable trip costs.

For customers who are already in Paris and wish to return early, Allianz Travel Insurance may provide reimbursement for their unused prepaid expenses and cover additional transportation costs for them to get home early, up to their trip interruption limit of liability. Affected customers should review their policy to determine their benefits and for details about their coverage.
