Our hub has been designed especially for you, with a wide variety of hints and tips to help you keep your home and contents safe.
Following careful consideration Yorkshire Bank have made the difficult decision to stop offering retail travel insurance underwritten by American International Group UK Limited (AIG).
If you have an Annual Multi-Trip Travel Insurance policy:
You’ll receive a letter from AIG 30 days before your renewal date providing you with details of an alternative travel insurance product.
In the meantime, please be assured that you’ll continue to be covered until your renewal date. Any claims up to this date will still be handled by the AIG claims team, as normal.
If you have any questions, you can contact AIG on 0345 605 0057 (open Monday to Friday 8am–8pm and Saturday and Bank Holidays 9am – 5pm).

Brexit Update - Travel Insurance
If you’re planning a trip to a European country in the next few months, you might be wondering if everything will go according to plan now that the UK has left the EU.
The UK government and the European Commission have said that everything should continue to run as normal, including your flights. But if you do need to make a Brexit-related claim, we’re here to help.
What happens if your baggage is delayed?
Your cover will work in the usual way, please double check the terms and conditions in your policy.
What happens if you have to pay for medical treatment while you’re away?
Your cover will work in the usual way. Your policy doesn’t require you to have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), so your policy and coverage will stay the same.
What happens if your trip is cancelled, cut short or you miss your departure?
Your travel insurance works on a ‘named perils’ basis. That means the insurance protects you against the problems or events specifically named in your policy.
Brexit isn’t one of these, so you won’t be covered if a Brexit-related event means you have to cancel or cut short your trip, or if you are delayed or miss your departure because of it. This includes if you are not able to get the passport or visa you need for your trip, so be sure to check yours is valid as soon as possible. You can head to www.gov.uk for lots of helpful information on this.
What happens if you experience any other problems?
If you (or any other person covered by this policy) are unable to complete your trip because of reasons out with your control and these reasons fall within the conditions of the policy, your cover will continue as normal.
You can cancel your policy within 14 days of buying it or receiving your policy documents (whichever is latest). We’ll provide a full refund as long as you haven’t travelled or made a claim in that time.
If more than 14 days has passed since you bought your policy, we’ll still provide a refund but we’ll make a deduction based on how long you’ve been on risk for cancellation cover, plus a £15 admin fee. Again, we can only do this if you have not travelled or made a claim yet.
Every claim is handled on a case-by-case basis, according to your policy’s terms and conditions.
If you have any questions about travel insurance and Brexit, please contact AIG Travel on 0345 605 0057 or email@example.com.
