New guidance on the impact of the pandemic on travel insurance cover has been issued for members who subscribe to the Group Insurance Scheme.
The scheme is run on behalf of Dyfed Powys Police Federation by Philip Williams and Co Insurance Management.
Ian Leyland from Philip Williams says cover on the travel policy is dependent upon Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) advice at the time of booking and the date of departure.
“The FCO is currently advising against all but essential travel and as a result there is no cover under any section of the policy if you were to travel while this advice was in force,” he explained.
“While the FCO is advising against all but essential travel if you were to book a holiday for a date later in the year there is no cover under the sections for Cancellation and Curtailment and Change of Itinerary and Travel Delay.”
This, he explains, is because of the general exclusion on Page 16 Point 7 of the policy:
Any circumstance that could have been reasonably foreseen as giving rise to a claim for Cancellation, Curtailment & Change of Itinerary or Travel Delay or Missed Departure at the time an Insured Journey was booked and paid for in part or in full.
