Q. Am I covered if my trip is going ahead as planned but I no longer wish to travel?

No, We understand how this can make your trip less enjoyable and means you may incur additional costs, but unfortunately this wouldn’t be covered – as it’s still your choice whether to go or not.

No. If this happens, please contact your tour operator or travel provider for assistance.

This is not a private health insurance policy. The Insurer will pay for private treatment only if there is no appropriate reciprocal health agreement in existence and no public service available and the Insurer reserves the right to organise a transfer from a private medical facility to a public medical facility where appropriate. If you are taken/or go to a private medical facility, costs that arise will only be covered if you have contacted  the emergency medical assistance company and any treatment has been authorised by them.

Pregnancy is not deemed to be an illness and therefore is only covered if complications arise with the pregnancy. However note that airlines may not carry a pregnant woman flying around her due date. There is no cover under the policy if an airline refuses to board the passenger. 

Most sections of the policy carry an Excess. This is the first amount of any claim that you will have to pay. The amount may vary depending on the level of cover you have chosen. It is applicable per person per section. The Excess will be reduced to NIL if you have used an EHIC (Formally E111) to reduce your medical expenses bill or paid the Excess Waiver upgrade.
