How to make a claim?

Please check your schedule of insurance and your policy wording to make sure they include cover for what you are claiming.

To start your claim, we will need fully completed claim forms; details of how to send below.  You can download the relevant forms by visiting our Claims information page.

Top Claims Tips & Form Guidelines

Now that you have your form, there are some simple things that you can do to make it easier for the claims department to process your claim:

  • On the front of the form you will be provided with a checklist of things that the claims team need to be able to process your claim. Please ensure you provide everything on the checklist wherever possible – if you cannot provide an item on the list, please enclose a note to explain why.
  • When filling out the claim form please write clearly and legibly – we recommend using block capitals and a black pen.
  • Provide as much information regarding the circumstances of your claim as possible – if there is not enough room on the form, use a separate sheet of paper and attach.
  • We strongly suggest that you send your claims information recorded delivery, and keep a copy of any documents that you send.
  • If you are making a claim for cancellation please obtain a claim form before you ask your doctor for a medical certificate.
  • Master policy number is found on the front page of your policy wordings.
