What Supporting Documents Will I Need For My Claim? | TID
When assessing your claim our team at Travel Insurance Direct won't ask for any documents that we really don't need. The best way to find out exactly what documents we do need in your specific circumstances is to start an online claim.
Your answers to the questions we ask you about your claim determine what documents you'll need to provide.
As a general rule, no matter which of our policies you choose – Domestic, The Basics, The Works, or Annual Multi Trip – we need up to four different types of documentation:
- Receipts or Invoices
Proof of purchase or ownership for any expenses or items you are claiming for.
- Proof of Travel
We need this to confirm the dates and location of your travel. (e.g. itinerary, ticket bookings, hotel confirmations)
- Official Reports
To verify the facts of your claim, we need to independently verify what happened on your claim. This means that if something is stolen, you must provide us with documentation confirming must you’ve reported it to the police or the relevant officer if it happened on public transport. If you lose something at your hotel, report it to the hotel. If you are ill, go to the doctor (or a legally qualified medical practitioner). They can then provide us with independent written confirmation of the event that led to your claim.
- Credit Card Statements
Where you have used your credit card to purchase your air tickets, we are likely to need copies of the statements.
All documents need to be provided in English.
