Kidnapping Insurance Information
Kidnap and ransom are legitimate threats for U.S. business owners. Unfortunately, these illegal acts have become a lucrative practice, with wealthy U.S. companies and business travelers often being the targets. Kidnap and ransom (K&R) insurance is typically a stand-alone policy designed for those who travel internationally to potentially high-risk regions of the world.

Common Kidnapping and Ransom Questions:
The average K&R policy covers costs relating to events such as:
Kidnapping and ransom—Seizing an individual with the intent to demand money in return for the individual’s safe return.
Wrongful detention—Confining an individual against their will for reasons other than kidnapping, often by a government or quasi-government entity for political aims.
Extortion—Demanding money with the threat to injure or kill an individual, damage property or divulge trade secrets (applicable to business travel).
Typically, kidnappers take foreign travelers captive in order to make a profit, not with the specific intention of harming them. The right type of coverage will give you and your loved ones peace of mind with the knowledge that if disaster strikes you’ll have the financial resources to get home safely.
Premiums for kidnap and ransom insurance are generally based on the type of industry, the insured company’s revenue, country of residence and employee travel patterns.
Insurance carriers advise employers not to reveal that they have K&R coverage. This confidentiality provision is designed to thwart employees from revealing to potential captors that they’re insured. A large K&R insurance policy may make the employee a lucrative target.
