Following news reports advising the potential for strike action on the rail and for air travel ahead of the Festive Period, here at Alpha Travel Insurance, we wanted to clarify for you all what cover is available to you during industrial action.
Extension of your Travel Insurance
Cover for medical expenses is extended in the event of delays or public transport failure during your trip which then result in you being unable to complete your trip, or return to the UK before your travel insurance policy expires.
Strike and Industrial Action
None of our policies cover strike or industrial action in any of the sections. We suggest going to your airlines or tour operators for compensation where "the other party to the contract will give prompt assistance to a consumer in difficulty", as per the package travel regulations that you can finer here: The Package Travel Compensation
If you have any further questions, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org, we’re happy to help!
