Travel insurance advice given to BA customers this Christmas

Those planning on taking a trip this festive season eill be relieved that they do not need to rely on their travel insurance over christmas.

The Association of British Insurers (ABI) said that Brits who had booked flights with the carrier should get in touch with the airline themselves and discuss the options they have available.

From December 22nd to January 2nd 2010, cabin crew members were set to strike and whilst the actioned has been cancelled, we expect more strikes will be announced in the New Year.

ABI said that those who are forced to make alternative travel arrangements when airlines strike should check that their travel insurance is still valid and noted that most firms will allow travellers to transfer their cover to a new trip in these circumstances.

"Cover under travel policies for cancellation in these circumstances can vary. Some policies cover against specific risks such as illness, redundancy, being called to jury service, but not industrial action, while other policies may provide this cover," it went on to explain.
