POLICY INFORMATION

 

Your insurance is covered under master policy numbers RTURI40035 - 04 A & B specially arranged through Covered2go travel insurance and insured by Union Reiseversicherung AG. Cover is provided for each passenger who is shown as having paid the insurance premiums and whose name is shown on the insurance certificate issued by Covered2go travel insurance and administered by Rush Insurance Services Limited, an appointed representative of ITC Compliance, who are authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority. This insurance wording is a copy of the master policies and is subject to the terms, conditions and exclusions of the master policies. Your single trip policy will only cover persons aged 80 or under and Your Annual Multi Trip policy will only cover persons aged 70 or under travelling on trips of 31 days or less, where you hold a return ticket within that period travel. Your Annual Multi Trip policy only covers trips of 31 days or less outside your home country and trips within your home country of a minimum of 3 days, unless the applicable premium has been paid to include trips up to 45 days or up to 60 days. Cover is only provided for children of the principal policyholder aged under 18 residing at home when they accompany the principal policyholder and/or his/her spouse. No independent travel of your children is covered. No refund of the insurance premium will be given after the policies have been issued unless, after receipt, you find that the terms, conditions and exclusions do not meet your requirements and an alternative is available. In this case you must return the policy, insurance certificate with your alternative insurance policy to the place where you purchased it within 14 days of purchase for a refund to be considered. Your policies do not provide cover on any claim that is due to a pre-existing medical condition of a close relative or close business associate. There is no cover for cruises under Bronze or Silver cover.

 

OUR PLEDGE TO YOU

 

It is our aim to give a high standard of service and to meet any claims covered by these policies honestly, fairly and promptly. We occasionally get complaints and these are usually through a misunderstanding or insufficient information. Any complaint will be investigated at once and the matter resolved as quickly as possible.

Policy A – Pre-Travel Policy

 

HOW YOUR PRE-TRAVEL POLICY WORKS

 

This part of your insurance document shows details of the pre-travel insurance policy, the sections of cover, limits, conditions, exclusions, and information on what to do if you need to claim. It is essential that you read it. The policy is a contract between us and you. We will pay for any event, as set out in the policy that happens during the period from purchase of the policy and time of booking to date of travel for which you have paid the appropriate premium. All numbers and letters shown under ‘For each insured-person this insurance will not cover:’ refer to the same numbers and letters under ‘For each insured-person this insurance will pay:’ Where no letters or numbers are shown it applies to the whole section. If you are a person buying insurance wholly or mainly for personal purposes unrelated to your employment, you have a duty to take reasonable care to answer questions fully and accurately, and that any information you volunteer is not misleading. This duty exists before the cover is placed, when renewed, or altered at any time throughout the duration of the policy. If you do not do so, your Insurer may be able to void your policy from inception. An example of this could be the medical history of a close relative or other person that may cause you to cancel or cut short your trip. If you are unsure whether or not information is relevant please do not hesitate to call us on 08452 307 624

 

WHEN YOUR PRE-TRAVEL POLICY STARTS AND ENDS

 

The cover on cancellation, as described under section A under the pre-travel policy, starts from the commencement date of cover shown on your insurance certificate, after the policy was issued and ends when you leave home to start each trip. Further trips of up to 31 days will be covered on Annual multi trip policies, unless the applicable premium has been paid to include trips up to 45 days or up to 60 days in duration.

 

CHANGE IN MEDICAL CONDITION OR ONGOING MEDICATION

 

If your health or your ongoing medication changes between the date the policy was bought and the date of travel you must advise Travellers HealthCheck on 08 451 300 340 as soon as possible. We will advise you what cover we are able to provide after the date of diagnosis. We reserve the right to increase the premium, increase the excess, exclude the condition or withdraw the cover should the stability of the condition make it necessary.
