In the US, terrorism insurance sales have risen

Travel insurance

A news report from UK Travel Insurance Comparison site InsureMyTrip has found that more US travellers than ever before are protected by Cancel for Any Reason Insurance when going abroad, with a reported 20-per-cent increase in sales of the insurance.

However, the report says that this trend doesn’t apply to travellers in Northeast Pennsylvania. “The vast majority of our agents have indicated that there has not been an increase in the number of Cancel for Any Reason insurance policies sold this year,” said Nina Waskevich, public relations director for AAA North Penn.

The report suggests that those travelling to areas prone to terrorism, such as the Middle East, are most likely to use Cancel for Any Reason coverage.
