TRAVEL DELAY + COVER
If you purchased a Premium level Getcover policy on or after the 1st June 2019, you may be able to avail of the Airport Lounge facilities while you wait for your delayed flight.
Lounge access will only become available on the announcement of a minimum two-hour delay, not, for example, two consecutive one-hour delays.
What you are covered for
If the outbound flight from the Republic of Ireland on which you are booked to travel is announced as delayed by at least four hours as a result of
- strike or industrial action provided that when this policy was taken out, there was no reasonable expectation that the trip would be delayed;
- adverse weather conditions;
- mechanical breakdown or technical fault of the aircraft.
You must have access to a mobile device so that you can receive an SMS message in order to gain access to the lounge.
Otherwise, your normal travel delay cover will apply and we would refer you to your policy document.
To take advantage of this benefit you will need to call one of the following :
If you purchased a Premium level Getcover Policy on or after 31st May 2019 call 01 290 8879.
If you purchased a Premium level Getcover Policy between 1st June 2018 and the 30th May 2019 call 01 290 8878.
You will need to quote your policy number and flight details. If your claim is valid you will then be sent an SMS message which will give you access to an airport lounge for the duration of your delay.
There may be occasions when this benefit is unavailable:
- If the lounge is closed when the delay occurs – during the night, for instance
If the lounge is at full capacity
- If you or another insured person fail to meet the lounge terms and conditions such as dress code or minimum age.
