Sri Lanka Bombing Attack

Please see below the latest update from our underwriters TIF in regards to the recent suspected Bomb Attack in Sri Lanka.

Following the news of the terrorist attack in Sri Lanka on 21st April 2019, we at tifgroup would like to extend our sympathies to those affected, and to clarify our position.

We always advise all travellers to check the FCO’s advice for their chosen destination and the current advice on this matter can be found here:

For residents of EIRE please follow the advice of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade as follows:

Please note, travel insurance will not be in place if the FCO advise against any travel to your chosen destination.

These claims should go through the tour operators at this time as there is no cover under the policy for attacks of terrorism.

Insurance “shifting”
If you are offered an alternative destination and / or dates from your travel agent, we are pleased to advise that we will shift your insurance policy to fit the new trip without any administration charges.

Premium Refunds
In the event that you are unable to move the trip to an alternative destination, and are offered a refund from your travel agent or tour operator, we are happy to offer a full refund of premium on the understanding that no claim is to be made against the policy.

If you are travelling independently, you should make your own arrangements to leave by either altering your return tickets where possible or booking an alternative form of transport.

In the event that you have specific questions not answered by this directive, please feel free to contact us on and we will endeavour to offer an answer.
