If your passport is lost, stolen, destroyed or expires while you're abroad, don't panic! You'll still be able to get home safely.
If you're a British national, you can use an emergency travel document (also known as an emergency passport) to leave the country you're in and return home. This can be issued on short notice while you're still overseas.
Your passport is covered by your insurance if you have selected baggage and personal belongings cover.
If your passport is lost, stolen or destroyed while you're away:
- We pay up to £500 for the extra transport, accommodation and administration costs you have to pay to get a temporary passport so you can return home
- We pay the equivalent cost (based on current replacement costs) of the period left on your passport if it's lost, stolen or destroyed
If you've selected Premier cover, an additional £1,000 for each person shown as covered on the policy is available for you to get to your destination or back home if:
- You're not allowed to board your pre-booked transport for reasons outside of your control
- No suitable alternative is provided that's scheduled to depart within 24 hours of your original departure time
If you're due to travel within seven days
of your trip start date and your passport is lost, stolen or destroyed, we pay up to £500 for the extra transport, accommodation and administration costs you have to pay to get a replacement.
If it isn't possible to get a replacement in time for you to travel as scheduled, we pay up to £500 towards the cost of your trip if you have to cancel, or towards alternative travel to get you to your destination.
Please allow enough time on your passport for you to get home, as your policy doesn't provide cover if it expires.
