( Insurance : Commercial insurance )
If the risk is assessed as being particularly severe, for example countries at war
or with civil unrest, coverage may be refused.
Political risk insurance is advisable if you are traveling to countries where there
is likely to be civil unrest.
Civil unrest is fighting between different groups of people living in the same country, and losses
caused by this fighting are usually not covered by insurance.
