(Not sure if Zurich is your insurer? If your policy number begins with COV, your insurer should be Zurich. However, please refer to your Certificate of Insurance for confirmation.)

  1. Extra information for Zurich policies relating to claims

    Please refer to the policy wording for conditions that apply to each section of cover, however, we recommend you familiarise yourself with the below:

    Lost or stolen luggage: You must report claims for lost or stolen belongings the police and/or your transport, accommodation or associated service provider as soon as possible, and obtain a written report within 24 hours.

    Medical claims: If your claim arises due to an emergency situation when you are travelling, please phone the emergency assistance number as soon as possible. If you are admitted to hospital or if you anticipate that your medical or related expenses are likely to exceed £300, you may still need to submit a claim form when you have returned home.

    We may also require access to your medical records and/or written confirmation from a medical practitioner for claims relating to health reasons, injury or death. If you do not provide this when requested, we will not be able to deal with your claim.
