Holiday Extras upgrades cover for existing policy holders travelling to the Channel Islands
Holiday Extras, the UK market leader in travel add-ons, is delighted to announce the restructuring of their insurance policies to the UK Government’s withdrawal from the Reciprocal Health Agreement with the Channel Islands.
Since April 1, 2009, travellers to the Channel Islands face the possibility of being liable for any medical expenses accrued during their time on the islands. The RHA between the UK and the Channel Islands was introduced in 1976, but has been revoked after being judged not to offer value for money for the British taxpayer.
Andrea Clayton, head of insurance at Holiday Extras, said: "With the revocation of the Reciprocal Health Agreement, British nationals will face having to pay for medical expenses that go beyond accident and emergency treatments.
Holiday Extras will provide a FREE upgrade on all policies issued before April 1, 2009 to ensure that travellers will not face expensive bills when seeking medical assistance during a Channel Island holiday”
For policies issued after April 1, the Channel Islands will be rated as a European destination.
