Coronavirus Update

You can contact the insurer, AIG, in the normal way if you need to make a claim.

(Lines are open Monday to Friday between 8am and 8pm and on Saturdays and Bank Holidays between 9am and 5pm.)

As of 11 March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic. As of that date, COVID-19 is considered a foreseen event. Because of that, certain cover on your travel insurance policy will not apply.

Specifically, any losses for trips booked or Private Current Accounts opened after 11 March 2020 relating to trip cancellation, trip interruption and/or trip delay caused by coronavirus (COVID-19) is not considered ’Unforeseen’. That means it won’t be covered under the terms and conditions of your Private Current Account travel insurance policy.

Coronavirus related claims will be considered for any element of travel booked, or Private Current Account opened, on or before 11 March 2020, subject to the policy conditions and Foreign and Commonwealth Office guidance. Any element of your trip booked after this date will not qualify for coronavirus (COVID-19) related claims.

If you have booked to travel and now need to cancel as a result please speak to your ATOL-protected tour operator, your cruise provider, airline or accommodation provider in the first instance. In many cases, you will be able to re-arrange or get a full refund on your trip.

For more information on how the coronavirus may impact you, please visit our dedicated coronavirus travel support centre.

You can contact the insurer, AIG, in the normal way if you need to make a claim.

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 in the event that the UK leaves 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.

How will Brexit affect your Private Account travel insurance?

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) so even if EHICs aren’t valid after Brexit, 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 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.

Changed your mind?

You can cancel your policy within 30 days of opening your Private Account.

Here to help

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 0330 123 3129 or
