Volcanic Ash - Upgrade to Insurance Cover

Lancashire Police Federation Worldwide Travel Scheme - Volcanic Ash Distruption - Travel Insurance - Upgrade to Policy

Following the volcanic ash and airport closures in April we have been in discussions with our insurer to provide cover if this situation arises again. We are delighted to say that as from 18th June 2010 the travel insurance will provide the following additional cover.

  • The policy will pay up to £3000 per person for unused travel & accommodation costs if on the day you are due to travel from the UK the airspace is closed for more than 24 hours.

  • If you are unable to return home on your scheduled return date due to the airspace being closed the policy will pay £100 per person for every full 24 hour period (to a maximum of £1000) OR up to £1,000 per insured person in respect of necessary and reasonable additional travel expenses after being delayed for 24 hours or more.

This is just a brief summary of the new cover, an endorsement with the full terms, conditions and exclusions will be issued shortly.

The travel insurance premium will increase by 40 pence from £5.15 to £5.55 per month from the July pay date. As your Federation we feel it's important to give our members where able the best possible cover and please note despite the increase in premium this is still 30p per month cheaper than last year.
