German Airport Staff Strike

Following the announcement of the strikes by baggage handlers, security staff and fire crews in Germany planned for Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th April 2018, we here at tifgroup would like to clarify our position.
Our policies do not cover strike or industrial action which started or that had been announced before the date you purchased your policy. 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.
