Kidnap Insurance

A type of insurance designed to protect individuals from the risk of kidnapping. Kidnap insurance often covers other events related to kidnapping, including extortion. In the case of a kidnapping, the policy holder is compensated for money paid as ransom, medical expenses, counseling or for accidental death of the kidnap victim.

Kidnap insurance is more likely to be used for individuals or companies operating in high-risk areas. These areas tend to have higher rates of crime and a history of kidnapping workers employed by multinational firms. Some of the common high-risk areas include Nigeria, Haiti and Venezuela.
