University of Oxford Travel Insurance
|TRAVEL INSURANCE POLICY CHANGES IN COVER|
Due to the ever increasing demands on the University travel insurance policy due to the type of travel undertaken and the increasing number of claims made, it has been necessary to alter certain non-essential benefits in order to continue to provide the necessary and comprehensive emergency assistance package. These changes are summarised below:
The changes will take effect from 1 August 2016. For persons who have already arranged their insurance and/or departed before 1 August 2016, the previous limits will apply.
