Details about our European Travel Insurance

Delay & missed departures

Delays sometimes seem like they can be an unavoidable part of travelling. That's why we offer you cover, along with missed departures and total holiday abandonment that are out of your control.

Notes

Delays and missed departures are not covered by Economy level policies. Flights, sea crossings or coach/train journeys must be delayed for 12+ hours as a direct result of industrial action, adverse weather or mechanical breakdown of the vehicles involved.

Cancellation & curtailment

If you’re forced to abandon your European holiday, cancel it before you leave or even cut your trip short once you've arrived, there's good news. Depending on your cover level, you’ll be covered between £1,500 and £10,000.

Notes

Applies as a result of unforeseen events as detailed in the terms and conditions.

Baggage & possessions

The hectic nature of traveling overseas can increase the risk that your personal luggage, money and passport get damaged, stolen or lost. With us, you can get covered up to £3,000.

Notes

£3,000 maximum cover applicable for Premier PLUS cover level – maximums are £1,500 on Economy or Standard and £2,000 on Premier. Single item limits apply.

Medical emergencies

If you find yourself in need of emergency medical treatment during your European holiday, don't worry. All of our policies cover you for up to £10m for emergency medical treatment and repatriation – and are backed up by our 24/7 emergency helpline.

Notes

Different excesses apply for each cover level. You must make all reasonable attempts to gain pre-approval from us before incurring medical expenses over £500. See terms and conditions for full details.

Frequently asked questions

Q
What is an "excess fee"?
Tap to read answer
A

Unless you have purchased ‘Premier PLUS’ cover, most sections of the policy carry an "excess fee". This is the amount you will have to pay – separate from your premium – if you make a claim which is approved. The amount may vary depending on the level of cover you have chosen, and is applicable per person, per section.

Q
How can I pay for my policy?
Tap to read answer
A

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Maestro/Switch, Solo, Visa Electron, Delta and American Express credit and debit cards. We can also accept cheques, but only for policies over the value of £100. The policy will not be set up until the cheque has been cleared through our bank. Cheques should be sent to:

PYB Travel Insurance,

Am I covered if my plans change?
Tap to read answer

Yes – but if your travel arrangements change, then you must call us immediately on 0343 658 0253 to ensure that we are aware of the changes and can evaluate whether cover needs to be extended or any additional premium is required. You must be able to provide the correct period of insurance on your documentation in the event of a claim.

Q
What if my bag is stolen with all my travel documents and money whilst I am travelling?
Tap to read answer
A

You must report any theft or losses to the local police or relevant authority within 24 hours of the event and obtain a written report or confirmation. These reports are the only proof that the loss/theft actually occurred. Without them, we cannot make any payment to you. If you leave luggage and personal items unattended in a public place then we won’t be able to approve your claim. See the key exclusions and conditions within the policy Terms and Conditions for more details.
