We know that there’s a lot of uncertainty around Brexit and what it means for UK citizens visiting EU countries. If the UK does leave the EU without a deal in place, and you’re planning a holiday abroad, you’ll probably have some questions about how your insurance policy may be affected.

The UK government has issued detailed advice regarding travelling abroad, and we’ve collected some information that our customers may need to be aware of on this page.

Because there’s lots about Brexit still to be finalised by the Government, we don’t want to give you information that could quickly become outdated. That’s why we’ll update this information as the situation develops, so you’ll know you’re seeing the most up-to-date information we have at that time.

As the UK’s largest travel insurance provider, AXA offers a number of travel insurance products. These include policies bought on the axa.co.uk website, through bank accounts (for example Lloyds, Halifax and Bank of Scotland) as well as via brokers. If you’re ever unsure what your policy includes or which product you’ve purchased, please refer to your policy documents.
