ALLIANZ (OUR INSURER)

Allianz will follow the policy terms and conditions when assessing any claims. For claims related to travel restrictions to other countries, Allianz will adhere to the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) advice. There are three levels:

  • no advice against travel
  • advice against all but essential travel; and
  • advice against all travel

Cover is valid when there is no FCDO advice against travel. Consideration will be given for 'Essential Travel' so long as evidence can be provided in the event of a claim to support that the nature of the trip made travel essential. There is no cover provided for travel to any destination the FCDO have advised against all travel to, regardless of the reason for the trip.

The latest FCDO guidance is here.

 

before you book your trip or start your journey

To help you, here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions

  • When should I contact the insurer about a pre-existing medical condition or about purchasing another upgrade to my policy?

    At the time of applying for Coutts Travel Protection or before you book a trip, you must call the insurers customer services and endorsements team to tell them about any medical conditions you or any other beneficiary covered under the policy have. 

    It’s best to call the insurer as soon as you are aware you need any other upgrade to enhance your protection, such as cover for guests you are paying for that are not a beneficiary of your policy and trip extensions. 

  • What cover have I got for COVID-19 or other pandemic disease?

    • unlimited medical cover if you contract COVID-19 or other pandemic diseases
    • cover for additional expenses incurred if you’re required to quarantine on medical advice during your trip, subject to policy terms and conditions
    • cancellation and curtailment cover if you or a travelling companion:
    1. are refused boarding of your pre-booked transport due to having symptoms of COVID-19 or other pandemic diseases (request evidence from the travel provider to support a claim);
    2. test positive for COVID-19 or other pandemic disease (evidence will be required for a positive test, either a GP’s letter to confirm not fit to travel or an authorised COVID-19 test centre result);
    3. a close family member contracts COVID-19 or another pandemic disease so you can’t go on your trip (evidence will be required for a positive test, either a letter from their GP or an authorised COVID-19 test centre result)
  • Who is covered under the Coutts Travel Protection policy?

    The protected client who has opted in, their partner/spouse and the protected client’s dependent children (up to 18 years of age or 23 years of age if still in full time education).

  • When should I contact the Allianz claims team to make a cancellation claim?

    Once you are aware of a need to cancel a trip contact the Allianz Assistance Travel Claims department by calling them on 020 7126 7531 (all calls with Coutts are recorded for training and monitoring purposes).  They will provide you with advice and guidance before you cancel the trip with the travel provider.

    Please note your travel insurance policy has an exclusion relating to recoverable expenses, this means that any expenses you can recover from elsewhere are not covered by your travel insurance policy.  

  • I need confirmation I have Coutts Travel Protection.

    Please contact your private banker who will be able to arrange this for you.  

  • Do I need a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or the replacement Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC)

    It is always recommended you travel with a valid EHIC or GHIC card, but it is not a replacement for travel insurance as it does not cover everything, such as mountain rescue or being flown back to the UK (medical repatriation). Make sure you have both before you travel. Find out more at Applying for healthcare cover abroad (GHIC and EHIC)  

during your trip
