Staff Travel Request

The UK Government triggered the Brexit process on 29 March, 2017, meaning the UK is scheduled to leave at 11pm UK time on Friday, 29 March 2019. It can be extended if all 28 EU members agree, but at the moment all sides are focusing on this date as being key, and this has now been put into British law. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-32810887.  Please be aware that our travel policy has a standard policy exclusion for claims occurring as a result of regulations made by any public authority or government or persons with the authority under legislation or licence to make regulations. At this time we have no official guidance from our Insurers as to how this clause will be interpreted in respect of Brexit however if you are travelling on University business after this date we should advise that it is possible the insurance may not respond to a claim for cancellation, curtailment, rearrangement, replacement, missed departure or travel delay, as a result of Brexit legislation. We will of course continue to review this with Insurers as negotiations continue.

Although cover is provided for most pre-existing conditions, cover is excluded for any expenses incurred when travelling against the advice of a Qualified Medical Practitioner. Therefore cover will be fully operative providing you are not travelling against medical advice. You should also ensure that you take sufficient supplies of all medication for the duration of your trip. You should refer to the insurance office if you are in any doubt to the severity of your condition. Any expenses incurred for over the counter pharmacy treatments are excluded. Treatment which in any way arises from or is attributable to any Human Immunodeficiency Virus infection or related syndrome is excluded (unless contracted as a result of a blood transfusion or other medical treatment).

Please note that travel insurance cannot be provided for holiday travel only.  We can provide insurance for holiday that is 'incidental' and taken in conjunction with a University buisiness trip.  The holiday days can be no longer in duration than the business days (which is includes the days for travelling).

Please ensure that a full itinerary is logged with your department and you remain contactable by the University for the duration of the trip.

For travel to any of the following countries, a risk assessment MUST be completed and you must contact the insurance office BEFORE travel is booked.
