Brexit advice for travel insurance customers

Brexit latest: this page was last updated on Monday 17th February 2020. To the best of our knowledge, the information below is full and correct as of that date.

At 11pm on 31st January 2020, the UK formally left the European Union and entered into a transition period, which will last until at least 31st December 2020.

If you’ve made plans to visit an EU country, you’re probably wondering how you’ll be affected.

During the transition period, most things will remain the same, including travelling to and from the EU. So until the transition period ends, you won’t need to do anything differently. But if you have any questions, here’s what you need to know about your travel insurance policy.

Which AXA travel insurance products does this guidance apply to?

As the UK’s largest travel insurance provider, AXA has several 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.

Will more guidance be issued in the future?

Lots of decisions around Brexit will continue to be finalised during the transition period, and as a result, our guidance could change. We’ll continue to update this page as the situation develops – so check back for the most up-to-date advice. However, please bear in mind that it may take time for us to reassess how political decisions will affect our customers.
