This is going to depend on what your travel insurance policy covers. There is no one answer

Have you checked with your travel insurance? It should list what qualifies as a covered event and what needs to happen to trigger a payout.

The volcanic action is along a line of fissures a good distance south of the airport. It's not a mountainous volcano and is located on the Reykjanes Peninsula near Grindavik. Unless something significant happens these fissures will release magna build up more slowly than an explosive eruption.

Livestream of the volcano can be seen here: Iceland Cams- Sundhnkar

As others have suggested, the insurance policy itself surely contains more pertinent information than any of our guesses.
