Heathrow Strikes

Please see below the latest update from our underwriters TIF in regards to the planned strikes at Heathrow airport.

Following the announcement of the Heathrow Strikes due over the summer period, we here at tifgroup would like to clarify our position.

The dates that have been released by Heathrow are:

  • 5th-6th August 2019
  • 23rd-24th August 2019


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 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 feel free to email us on and we will endeavour to offer an answer.
