Yes, if you booked trips and were eligible for travel insurance through your Nationwide Current Account before any disruption was known about Travel Delay and Trip Abandonment cover will apply in line with the current terms and conditions.
Your policy won’t provide cover if you miss your departure where you haven’t left sufficient time to travel to your departure point, e.g. if your planned route would usually take 2 hours and it is publicised in the media that the same journey is taking 4 hours, if you don’t allow this extra time your claim may not be covered. That’s why it’s important you make yourself aware of any potential disruption to your planned route.
You also won’t be covered if you were already aware of travel disruptions or risks to your arrangements when you booked the trip, opened your account or bought an upgrade.
As there is the potential for disruption, please plan accordingly. We advise customers to:
- Allow plenty of time to get to and travel through railway stations, airports or ports when travelling to the European Union (EU) and check with your travel provider to see their latest advice on how early you need to arrive at your departure point.
- Ensure that any travel documentation such as passports have adequate time remaining on them. You can check at passport checker.
