Rising kidnap risk - are you insured for your travels?

Insurance Insight reported yesterday "Rising kidnap risk amid Eurozone unrest"

According to Francesca Nyman "The rising risk of abductions as a result of social unrest in the Eurozone is creating opportunities for insurers specialising in kidnap and ransom policies.

There is no evidence yet of an increase in kidnapping in crisis-struck Greece, Italy and Spain, but insurers are apparently banking on an upturn to boost sales of policies."  More on this Here  and at Reuters Here who state that About 15 insurers worldwide offer kidnap cover.
