We will normally communicate with you by post, telephone or email. Please let us know if you would prefer not to receive communications by email.
Before you enter into a policy with us, you have a duty to disclose to us every material fact that you know, or a reasonable person in the circumstances could be expected to know, which is relevant to our decision whether to accept the risk of Insurance and if so, on what terms. A material fact is any fact, medical or otherwise, which poses an increase in risk to us and likely to influence us in the assessment, acceptance or continuance of your Insurance.
Please note: if you fail to disclose any material facts to us, this could invalidate your Insurance cover.
It is very important that information given in proposal forms, claim forms and declarations to the Insurer is correct. If a form or declaration is completed on your behalf, it is your responsibility to check that the answers given to all questions are true and complete. You are advised to keep copies of any correspondence you send to us or direct to the insurer.
Unless we tell you otherwise, when you take out or renew a policy with us, we make no charges in addition to the Insurer's Premium.

We are registered under the Data Protection Act 1998 and undertake to comply with the Act in all our dealings with personal data.
We will normally deal with requests to increase or amend cover on the day your instructions are received, or the next working day (if a weekend or public holiday). Sometimes changes cannot be processed without obtaining additional information. If additional information is required, we will contact you, as quickly as possible.
We will confirm changes to your policy, once agreed, in writing. We will also advise you of any extra Premiums you must pay or Premiums, we must return to you.
We do not consider instructions to arrange or change cover sent to us by post or electronic mail, or left on answering equipment, to have been received until they reach the relevant Personnel in our offices.

Our aim is to produce documentation and correspondence in a clear and understandable format. In the event of any uncertainty we would ask you to let us know immediately. Our staff are always happy to clarify the cover provided. You should check all policy documentation to ensure that the details are correct and the cover provided meets with your requirements. Any errors should be notified to us immediately. We recommend that you keep policy documents for as long as a claim is possible under the policy.
In the event, you need to make a Claim, you should firstly check the relevant section of you policy to see if you are covered, and check what documentation is required to make a Claim. When returning home, contact the Claims Service to request a Claim Form, you will need to quote your Insurance Certificate Number. In certain cases, you may wish to claim whilst still travelling, this is possible, but you must still adhere to the usual claim requirements.
The Assistance Service will confirm whether your treatment or expenses are covered under the terms of your policy and can liaise directly with hospitals regarding your medical requirements and payment of bills. Should you require specialist travel arrangements, the Assistance Service can make appropriate arrangements, based on medical necessity. In some cases, it may be easier to pay minor expenses yourself. If you are in any doubts as to whether these costs will be covered, contact the Assistance Service for prior authorisation. You should keep all Receipts and Medical Reports and submit a Claim when you return home.
The contact details for your Claims Service are provided on the Certificate of Insurance as well as in the Insurance Policy Terms and Conditions. Keep copies of your completed Claim Form and all supporting documentation, as originals must be submitted to the Claims Service.
