BREXIT, our response, and how this affects you

In response to the UK's departure from the European Economic Area (EEA), we have made a number of changes to the structure of this insurance to ensure we can continue to provide residents of the EEA with our travel insurance and the protection afforded by it. These changes will apply to all policies issued to EEA residents from 1st March 2019. Read more here.
