Travel insurance

Jump to last reply

Not sure if this is the proper forum but I'll ask.

We are in the process of booking airfare and a cruise from Istanbul to Athens. I'm not overly concerned about the situation in Turkey but I am to some extent. I plan on buying travel insurance but I'm wondering if anyone knows if travel insurance typically covers trip interruption due to political unrest.

I called American Express insurance and was told they cover interruption due to acts of terror but not political unrest. That seems a fine line.

Does anyone know of a travel insurance plan that covers loss for political unrest like the current situation in Turkey?
