Trip Interruption/Cancellation due to Icelandic Volcano Eruption

Hi, Colleagues in Retirement,

RE: Trip Interruption/Cancellation due to Icelandic Volcano Eruption

For your possible interest and information (see below for query and answer from MEDOC). Do hope that no one was affected by this but in case you were, you may find this of value.

With best wishes for a lovely Earth Day!

Query RE: Trip Cancellation/Interruption Due to Icelandic Volcano Eruption

I have been in touch with the Lynda Stewart in regards to a question about trip cancellation or interruption due to the recent Iceland volcanic ash situation. A friend of mine missed her flight to Rome and a cruise due to this situation. As the eruption could be considered "an act of God", would the Medoc insurance cover our members in this situation?

This morning I received the following reply from Lynda.

All the best, Judy

Answer from MEDOC:

I have checked with our MEDOC team; and they advise that
trips that have been interrupted or cancelled due to the volcanic ash
situation originating in Iceland will be covered on their MEDOC policy.
Members would need to contact the MEDOC claims service provider, GEM at the
numbers shown on the back of their MEDOC card.
