Kidnap and Ransom Insurance

Many of the regions around the world that offer rich rewards are also associated with disturbing and dangerous risks.

It is estimated that there are anywhere between 12,500 and 25,000 kidnappings per year worldwide./  Some sources say that this figure has risen by 100% over the last 6 years.

Kidnappings are usually carried out to obtain a ransom. Few victims are rescued or released without ransoms being paid.

Kidnappings can occur in any region of the world but ‘hot spots’ include:

  • Warzones (Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen)
  • Sub-Saharan Africa
  • Areas suffering from political or social unrest.

Standard Precautions should include:

  • Conducting risk assessment prior to travel
  • Keeping up to date with Foreign Office advice
  • Registering with relevant Embassies overseas
  • Reviewing necessary safety precautions specific to the environment
  • Limiting the publication / knowledge of your travel plans
