Earthquake in Greece and Turkey - ABI Advice

Travel insurance is there to help people in circumstances like those being experienced in Greece and Turkey. Anyone directly affected is advised to contact their tour operator or travel insurer for assistance as soon as possible.

All travel policies will provide cover for medical expenses linked to injuries sustained as a result of the earthquake or tsunami. Some policies may also cover travel disruption, if help is not already provided tour operators.

Anyone booked to go to Greece or Turkey should check the latest Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice, and talk to their tour operator, travel agent or air carrier. Where alternative travel arrangements are made you can usually transfer your travel insurance to cover new dates. Policyholders should speak directly to their insurer if they have any questions.
