The UK government has also issued detailed advice about visiting Europe.

Who 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 this guidance change?
Lots of decisions around Brexit are still to be finalised by the Government, 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.
