ABI advice on travel insurance regarding Gatwick drone closure

The Association of British Insurers has issued the following advice in response to the closures at Gatwick Airport caused by a drone:

“Where illegal drone activity has grounded or diverted flights, as with all flight cancellations or disruption, you should speak to your airline or travel company first who will have certain responsibilities under the law. For additional travel disruption costs, such as missed hotel bookings or already paid for activities that you can no longer make, you should speak to your travel insurer as these may be covered under the terms of your travel insurance depending on the type of cover you have bought.”
