What information do we need to register a claim?

In order to successfully register the claim and allow us to begin to make any additional enquiries, we require the following information at the time of reporting the claim:

  • Policy/certificate number
  • Issue date of the policy
  • Cover dates of the insurance
  • Claimants details (name, address, email and contact numbers)
  • Date of loss
  • Circumstances surrounding the loss
  • Dates of travel
  • Claim expenses

 

A claim has been made - what can you expect to happen next?

Keeping you updated

We will keep you and/or the policyholder updated on the progress on the claim.

This can be done in a number of different ways:

  • We will keep you updated on progress by pro-actively contacting you by telephone with any important developments
  • We will update the policyholder through their preferred method of contact - by post or by email
  • We are able to send the policyholder relevant SMS message updates throughout the claim

How we settle claims

If you are admitted to a hospital/clinic while abroad, our assistance team will arrange for medical expenses, covered by the policy, to be paid direct to the hospital/clinic. To take advantage of this benefit someone must contact the assistance team for you as soon as possible.

For all non-emergency medical assistance claims we will settle the expenses directly to the claimant.

Complaints

Our aim is to give you the highest standard of customer service, so we take any complaint seriously. If you are not happy with any aspect of our service please contact the claims team.
