Demands and needs
Extramile Global Travel Insurance arranged by AICUK Ltd is typically suitable for travel customers who wish to insure themselves for medical emergencies, delayed or missed departures, cancellation and curtailment, lost, stolen or delayed possessions, loss of travel money and passport, personal accident, personal liability and legal expenses while travelling. As we do provide cover to higher risk territories as well as more normal travel destinations we have designed our policy to include as standard specialist cover for political and natural catastrophe repatriation and specialist contingency management (Responsive Disaster Recovery cover).
The levels of cover may vary depending on which option you choose and where you travel.
Travel insurance does not cover everything. You should read this policy carefully to make sure it provides the cover you need.
You may already possess alternative travel, personal or business insurance for some or all of the features and benefits provided by this travel insurance product. It is your responsibility to investigate this.
AICUK Ltd has not provided you with any recommendation or advice about whether this product fulfils your specific insurance requirements.

You may be entitled to compensation from the scheme if we cannot meet our obligations. This depends on the type of business and the circumstances of the claim.

Your Duty of Disclosure
You must take reasonable care not to make a misrepresentation to the insurer. This means that all the answers you give and statements you make as part of your insurance application, including at renewal and when an amendment to your policy is required, should be honest and accurate. If you deliberately or carelessly misinform the insurers, this could mean that part of or all of a claim may not be paid.
If the insurance is arranged wholly or mainly for purposes related to your trade, business or profession you have a duty to disclose all material facts whether or not we ask for specific information. This duty applies throughout the life of your policy, and when you renew your insurance. Material facts are any facts which may influence the insurer’s decision to accept the policy and/or what terms are applied. Failure to disclose a material fact may invalidate your insurance and could mean that your claim will not be paid.
