Travel Insurance going to Libya

 Libya (Capital Tripoli ) has been involved in a civil war for 8 months that is now coming to an end (October 2011). It is extremely important that visitors review the FCO advice (link at the bottom of the page) as this changes on a regular basis. Since Libya has a Mediterranean coastline some travel insurance companies rate Libya as being in Europe - resulting in reduced premiums for independent travellers, backpackers and the over 65, , over 80 and over 85 (perhaps visiting second world war battle locations)

Countries Bordering Libya

Tunisia, Algeria, Niger, Chad, Sudan, Egypt

Advice for travellers

The FCO' advice is found at: 

If buying travel insurance for Libya, travellers should check the FCO website at regular intervals as travel against the advice of the FCO would make the policy invalid.
