French Air Traffic Control Strikes

Please see below the latest update from our underwriters TIF in regards to the planned French Air Traffic Control Strikes.

Following the announcement of the air traffic control due to take place in France from Wednesday 8th May 2019 until Friday 10th May 2019, we here at tifgroup would like to clarify our position.

We recommend that you contact your airline/travel agent for more information about what might be available to you.

Cancellation
Our policies do not cover strike or industrial action which started or that had been announced before the date of your departure. We would refer clients to the airlines or their tour operator for compensation where “the other party to the contract will give prompt assistance to a consumer in difficulty”, as per the package travel regulations found here The Package Travel Compensation

Extension of your Travel Insurance
Cover 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.
