Cover is not provided for travel to or through Cuba, Iran, Syria, Sudan, North Korea, the Crimea Region or areas where the Foreign and Commonwealth Office have advised against all but essential travel.

Following the recent announcements regarding cancelled Ryanair flights and the Monarch Airline liquidation, we have been in dialogue with our Travel Insurance provider, AIG Europe Limited (“AIG”).
AIG will ask anyone who has been affected by the cancellation of a Ryanair or Monarch flight to contact Ryanair or Monarch as appropriate(and/or their booking company) regarding all losses incurred in the first instance in accordance with the ‘Travel Delays’ section of their policy, and the recommendations of the ABI.
For flights booked with Ryanair, EU flight compensation regulations require airlines to provide compensation to passengers for cancellations. AIG would expect Ryanair to compensate customers in accordance with its obligations under those regulations. Where pre-paid costs such as accommodation are not refunded through these channels, customers may raise a claim with AIG.
For Monarch Airlines bookings, contact should be made with Monarch Airlines, the booking company or the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for assistance in the first instance.
