Italian Air Traffic Control Strikes

Following the announcement of the strikes by Italian Air Traffic Control on 8th June 2018, we here at tifgroup would like to clarify our position.

Cancellation
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.
