Guidance on travel to France or Belgium

Following the recent tragic events in Paris, and the expansion of the subsequent investigations to Brussels, we are committed to supporting our customers.

Trips that you are considering cancelling

Please contact your Zurich Municipal Claims representative if you wish to discuss your circumstances or to make a claim.

Trips that go ahead

Should you wish to continue with your pre-booked trip, then your policy will apply for the duration of the journey provided that no official warning about travel, published by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, is in force in relation to you or your destination when you depart.

Trips that you wish to book now

If you book a trip to a destination that is subject to a published FCO warning not to travel:

  • We regret that we will not cover delay/cancellation/rearrangement or political evacuation expenses
  • We will consider offering other aspects of cover on submission of your details to your usual Zurich Municipal Underwriting team

It is important to follow advice published on the FCO website: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice
