How the Air NZ strike affects your holiday insurance cover.
Posted: 7th December, 2018
If you bought your policy before 9am (NZST) on 7th December 2018…
…you have cover to cancel or make changes to your holiday if your pre-paid arrangements are affected by the Air NZ strike and you can no longer continue with your holiday as originally planned.
If you bought your policy on or after 9am (NZST) on 7th December 2018…
…you don’t have cover for anything arising from or related to this Air NZ strike.
As notice of the strike has now been released and published by many news outlets, we would not consider it to be unexpected if you or your holiday are affected by the strike.
If you’re concerned about what might be covered and what that means for you, email us here – and we’ll get right back to you.
