I'm looking for travel insurance that would cover trip cancelation due to civil unrest. Is anyone here familiar with this? From some research it seems like there are a few insurers/policies that include it, but it's not clear what they would consider civil unrest.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Bump. TIA.

I use only Travel Guard for my customers. Coverage varies based on what state you are in. I am not a licensed insurance agent so I could not answer the specifics of what the plans cover.

I recommend you call Travel Guard at 800-826-4919 and aske to speak to an agent that is licensed for where you are a resident of. They can give you specific answers.

My Travel Insurance company is calling the situation in Israel "Civil Unrest" (as opposed to terrorism which would be a covered reason for cancellation). Any ammunition I can use to help convince them?

Civil unrest is within 1 country itself. This is either war or terrorism definitely not civil unrest.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a travel insurance policy (or a good site to compare policies) for seniors (over 80) that will cover medical, luggage, delays, cancellations for medical reasons, etc. for a trip which includes flights to Europe and a 1-week cruise?

thx
