Travel against FCDO advice:
Our policies do NOT cover travel to a country or specific area or event to which the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) has advised against all (or all but essential), travel. It is your responsibility to check the latest advice from the FCDO prior to commencing your trip, which you can find at https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice.
Please be aware that this is not a private medical insurance policy:
Your policy is not a private medical insurance policy, and does not cover private medical treatment, private hospital costs or other related expenses incurred unless these have been specifically agreed and authorised by the "Emergency Medical Assistance Company" as part of a medical emergency covered by this policy.
Claims for reimbursement of costs:
This policy will only respond to claims for irrecoverable losses. That means only once those principally responsible for reimbursing the cost have been exhausted. For example you should, in the first instance, contact your tour operator, airline, accommodation provider, credit or debit card providers to source a refund.
