Festive Period Strikes


Following news reports advising the potential for strike action for rail and air travel ahead of the Festive Period, we here at Travel Insurance Facilities wanted to take the opportunity to clarify what cover is available when industrial action is involved.

Extension of your Travel Insurance

Cover for medical expenses will be extended in the event of a delay or failure of public transport services during your trip which result in you being unable to complete your trip before your travel policy expires.

Strike and Industrial Action

Our policies do not cover strike or industrial action in any of our sections. We would refer clients to the airlines or their tour operator for compensation where “the other party to the contract will give prompt assistance to a consumer in difficulty”, as per the package travel regulations found here The Package Travel Compensation.

In the event that you have specific questions not answered by this directive, please feel free to contact us on directivesqueries@tif-plc.co.uk we will endeavour to offer an answer.
