We've put together some important information about Brexit and if it will affect your Travel Insurance after the 29th March.
The following statement has been agreed by Legal & General Travel Insurance’s underwriter AWP P&C SA – who are part of Allianz Partners regarding how Brexit may affect your Travel Insurance Policy.
In any Brexit circumstance, any Travel Insurance policy underwritten by Allianz Partners will remain valid subject to the existing terms and conditions and irrespective of the date of purchase of the policy. For example:
Your Travel Insurance will still cover any medical assistance required irrespective of any changes that might be made to the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) status. Your cover will still be subject to the normal disclosure of any pre-existing medical conditions.
In the case of delay or disruption to your travel, the first contact should be with your airline or travel provider. Customers who have purchased an ABTA protected trip or have used a credit card, will have additional consumer protection. You should also check if your Travel Insurance policy includes travel delay or disruption cover.
The Cancellation, Delay and Missed Departure sections of the Legal & General Travel Insurance policy covers specified perils only – i.e. poor weather; strike; industrial action or mechanical breakdown, so if a delay occurs that is not as a result of any of these perils such as Brexit there is no cover.
This information is subject to change so when arranging any Travel Insurance please check at the point of purchase if you have any further queries
