Current world events mean that travellers sometimes have to deal with the possibility of a terrorist incident. Luckily, just a few locations around the world face this threat.

See below for what to do and where to find information if the country you are visiting, or are due to travel to, has been affected.

Visiting somewhere affected by an act of terrorism

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) constantly updates travel advice on countries affected by terrorist activity. In some cases, this may not result in advice not to travel – and in other cases it may recommend travel there only if it’s essential (holidays are not considered essential under Saga Travel Insurance) or it might urge no travel at all. (See FCO Advice Against Travel section for the cover provided).

Already in a location affected by terrorism

In the event that you are injured overseas by an act of terrorism, Saga Travel Insurance provides cover for your medical treatment and repatriation expenses.

Further advice and up to date information

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) website contains up to date information on alternative travel options, passenger rights and contact details for its embassies overseas.
