Following the news of a foiled terrorist attack at the Louvre, Paris today, we at Alpha Travel Insurance would like to clarify our position.
We always suggest checking the current FCO advice regarding your travel destination; the advice for France can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/france
For EIRE residents, the advice from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade are here: https://www.dfa.ie/travel/travel-advice/a-z-list-of-countries/france/
This type of event is unfortunately not covered across the travel insurance industry for claims relating to cancellation, therefore all claims regarding cancellation should be directed to your travel agents/tour operators.
If you have been offered an alternative destination and/or travel dates for your trip by you travel agents or your operators, then we are pleased to say we can 'shift' your insurance policy to correspond with these for free. To find out more with regards to shifting your insurance, please email: email@example.com and our claims team will be happy to help.
If you are travelling independently, you should make your own alternative travel arrangements and then contact us to let us know if you need us to alter your policy.
If you can't move your trip destination or dates, and your travel agent/tour operator offer you a full refund, then we are also happy to offer you a refund of your policy premium, as long as no claims have been or will be made against this policy.
If you have any further questions, queries or general concerns, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org, we’re happy to help!
