Hong Kong Protests and Unrest


Following the ongoing protests and unrest in Hong Kong we here at tifgroup would like to clarify our position and how your travel insurance may be affected.

 

Cancellation

Travel insurance policies will not cover any travel when it is against the advice or recommendation of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office applicable at the time of your departure. The current FCO advice can be found by selecting your chosen destination in the list of countries found at the following link – https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/hong-kong

For residents of Ireland please follow the advice of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade as follows: https://www.dfa.ie/travel/travel-advice/a-z-list-of-countries/china-hong-kong-macau/

Please also refer to your tour operator / airline in regards to how the situation has affected your return journey home.

 

If you need to come home early

Please contact your tour operator in the first instance if you need to come home early due to political unrest. For further advice we would recommend contacting the British Embassy.  Please follow this link to find out where the embassy is located in the country you are in https://www.gov.uk/world/organisations/british-consulate-general-hong-kong.

We also recommend viewing the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on the links provided above for further information that may be suitable to the situation.

Please revisit this page on the first working day following this announcement at which point we will be able to provide more tailored information to this incident.

 

Extension of your Travel Insurance

Cover will be extended in the event of a delay or failure of public transport services during your trip which result in you being unable to complete your trip before your travel policy expires.

 

In the event that you have specific questions not answered by this directive, please contact your insurance company directly either by email or over the phone.
