Security Situation in Europe and Travel Insurance (including School Trips)

The Insurance Section has received a number of queries about travel insurance for planned trips to Europe following the acts of terrorism in Paris in November 2015 and in Brussels in March 2016.

Travel insurance for business trips by Council employees, and insurance for trips arranged by schools that are enrolled in the Council’s School Activities Travel scheme, is provided by Zurich Municipal and it is a matter for the insurer to determine the validity of any specific claim against those policies.

However the Insurance Section can provide advice on interpretation of the policy cover and offer assistance to any school or Council service that experiences difficulty in making a claim. Please contact us via insurance@somerset.gov.uk.
