Current world events mean that travellers sometimes have to deal with the possibility of a terrorist incident. 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, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) constantly updates their 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.
Our FCDO Advice Against Travel page provides more information around the levels of cover provided in areas the Government advise against travelling to.
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, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) website contains up to date information on alternative travel options, passenger rights and contact details for its embassies overseas.
