Brexit-proof your holiday for less than a coffee
In the wake of this week’s unfolding Brexit deadlock, uncertainty for March 29 and beyond is reaching fever pitch with the same being said for anxious Brits’ overseas travel plans; at this point no one knows how they will be affected. However, the introduction of CoverForYou‘s Brexit Trip Disruption Cover, an insurance add-on which starts from as little as £1.50 for an individual weekend break, is designed to help UK holiday-goers rest more easily – for less than the price of a daily coffee fix.
The Brexit Trip Disruption Cover from multi award-winning travel insurer, CoverForYou, ensures travellers are covered for instances of Brexit-related travel disruption. These include unused travel, accommodation and other pre-paid charges as a result of public transport delays or cancellation, strikes, industrial action, and other factors caused by Brexit. Should planes be grounded, cancelled or delayed as a result of there not being a deal in place, all consumers’ financial consequences are covered with CoverForYou’s Brexit Trip Disruption add-on.
What’s more, all CoverForYou’s policies include medical cover in the event that British tourists are unable to use their European EHIC card after Brexit. Many Brits have already wondered about the Brexit effects on your EHIC, and there doesn’t seem to be much in the way of a clear answer as of yet. Even in the scenario where it is still valid, CoverForYou encourages consumers to remember that it is not a substitute for travel insurance as the EHIC card will not pay for repatriation in the event of medical emergency, nor will it cover cancellation, baggage and all the other benefits associated with a travel insurance policy.
CoverForYou Founder and Managing Director, Neil Wright, says: “In this time of great uncertainty, we wanted to provide a well-needed reassurance for our 4.5million customers that they would be covered for any Brexit-related disruptions. At CoverForYou we pride ourselves in transparency and customer relations, providing flexible, bespoke cover and paying out 90% of claims to ensure customers’ needs always come first.
By introducing our Brexit Trip Disruption Cover, which can be added on to any new or existing policies, CoverForYou customers can travel safe in the knowledge that political decision-making won’t leave them stranded. For full cover, we advise anyone booking a trip to purchase travel insurance at the same time, adding Brexit Trip Disruption Cover, to ensure they are accounted for in various instances of travel delays and flight cancellations ahead of departure.”
CoverForYou allows travellers to very quickly and easily design and purchase bespoke policies – from Annual Multi Trip (from £32) to Single Trip Cover (from £4.25 for a weekend). All policies have zero excess, whatever the holiday, and come without all the jargon. Unlike other insurance brands who are under fire for penalising returning customers over new policyholders, CoverForYou is also one of the only travel insurers to provide repeat customers with discounts (up to 20%) across every policy type or for referring a friend.
All CoverForYou travel insurance products are underwritten by AXA and available to UK residents aged 18-65. Trips must start and end in the UK. Visit www.coverforyou.com to find out more.
