Definition

  • An insurance policy purchased to protect individuals when working or travelling in high-risk areas such as Latin America, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. Kidnap and ransom insurance, also known as K&R insurance, will reimburse the insured for ransom payments (both those paid, and those lost in transit) and cover perils such as kidnapping, extortion, wrongful detention, and hijacking in addition to providing coverage for death and dismemberment, disablement, and medical care for the kidnap victim. A K&R insurance policy may also reimburse the insured for crisis management consultants who provide advice on how best to respond to an incident.
