Yes, if you booked trips or bought travel insurance before any disruption was known about.
In those circumstances, our policies will continue to provide cover for emergency medical expenses in the event of a no-deal Brexit. This includes emergency treatment in state hospitals in European countries which would have previously been covered by the EHIC (European Health Insurance Card).
If your travel is disrupted in the immediate aftermath of a no-deal Brexit, Travel Delay and Trip Abandonment cover will also apply as per the current terms and conditions. Look to your travel provider in the first instance to provide refunds and/or alternative travel arrangements.
As there is the potential for disruption, please plan accordingly. We advise customers to:
Allow plenty of time to get to and travel through airports or ports.*
Ensure that any travel documentation such as passports have adequate time remaining on them. You should have at least six months left on your passport from your date of arrival. This applies to both adult and child passports.*
Remember to buy travel insurance as soon as you book your trip.
You won’t be covered if you’re aware of travel disruptions or risks to your arrangements when you book the trip or buy insurance*
Travel insurance covers emergency medical expenses and any required medical repatriation/curtailment, but does not replace the EHIC on a like-for-like basis in relation to foreseen, maintenance treatment (i.e. ongoing kidney dialysis).
