Safety, Travel, and Insurance
The physical safety of travelers is of utmost concern to life insurance carriers.
For example, underwriters consider the possibility of insurrections, which could endanger the lives of all people - foreigners included - at the site of the uprising. To enhance their understanding of safety and travel, they rely on data independently collected by the insurance industry, itself.
In addition, they rely upon current travel warnings issued on a regular basis by the United States Department of State. This list assesses the relative safety of traveling to different locations due to health conditions, crime, political instability, military conflict, and other factors. Notably, the location of "Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza" appears on that list.
