Travel Insurance Credit

We recognise that the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is an extraordinary circumstance that has affected many travellers around the world.

Eligible customers who have been affected by coronavirus (COVID-19) travel restrictions have been offered a travel insurance credit.

In addition, we are offering eligible customers the option to cancel their policy outside the cooling-off period and obtain a refund. You can request a refund here.

How to use the credit

Customers who have received written confirmation of their offer of credit, can redeem this credit by purchasing a new policy and contacting us before 31 March 2023 to receive a refund on the original unused policy.

Terms of credit

  • Customers, with departure dates up to and including 31 March 2021 must apply for a credit offer by 31 March 2021.
