Travel Insurance

We at ETI International Travel Protection (ERV UK) hope that your holiday runs smoothly from beginning to end. Nevertheless, it is a sad reality that things can and do go wrong on an active holiday abroad. Therefore it is vital that all holidaymakers possess adequate travel insurance when booking and embarking on a holiday abroad.

What cover do I need?

At ETI we have devised two products for you to choose in order to ensure you get the protection you need: Cancellation Cover and Travel Protection Package. The Insurerer is ETI InternationalTravel Protection (ETI) the UK Branch of Europaische Reiseversicherung AG Munich, registered at Companies House FC25660, BR 007939. ETI is licensed by the German Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht (BAFin – www.bafin.de) and approved by the Financial Services Authority (FSA – www.fsa.gov.uk) to undertake insurance business in the UK. ETI International Travel Protection is a member of the: Financial Ombudsman Service – www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk, Association of British Insurers – www.abi.org.uk, Financial Services Compensation Scheme – www. fscs.org.uk and The European Travel Insurance Group (ETIG) – www.eti-group.biz.

How do I make a claim on my insurance if my holiday has to be cancelled for an insured reason?

After the lead passenger has informed us of the cancellation of someone in his or her party, we will issue a new Booking Confirmation (Cancellation Confirmation) including an invoice for the cancellation fees that have arisen. The cancellation fees must be paid to the tour operator. If the individual has purchased cancellation insurance and is cancelling the holiday due to an insured reason (see policy for details), the individual must contact the insurance provider, stating the number on insurance certificate, to be reimbursed the cancellation fees. The number on the insurance certificate is identical to the Booking Confirmation number. You will find the contact details for the insurance provider on the insurance certificate. The insurance will notify you as to which documents are necessary (i.e. Cancellation Confirmation, medical report) to receive your reimbursement. Please note that a claim must be filed.
