NARPO Travel Insurance - Update

The following has been provided by NARPO HQ as a result of recent enquiries.

'As you may be aware, we offer our members the option to purchase Standalone Annual Travel insurance via our intermediary Towergate Health & Protection and the insurer AXA Health.

AXA Health has informed us via Towergate Health & Protection of its decision to cease providing this cover to NARPO members.

For members that have purchased standalone Travel Cover via Towergate Health & Protection, this means when their travel cover renews after 1st May 2021, it will be their final 12 months of cover with AXA Health. All affected members will be written to by AXA Health in good time before the renewal date with more detail about the impact on cover for the affected members.

Furthermore, AXA Health will cease to offer travel insurance via Towergate Health & Protection to NARPO members wishing to join (or re-join) the scheme from 31st October 2021.

We have instructed Towergate Health & Protection to source an alternate travel insurance product which can be purchased from them and we hope they will have this in place by summer 2021.

If you require any advice regarding either your existing travel policy, or if you are considering joining the travel insurance scheme, please contact Towergate Health & Protection on 0800 3897724 or email haps-narpoenquiries@towergate.co.uk .

Please note that any annual travel insurance purchased as an option on an AXA Health Private Medical Insurance plan will continue to renew as usual'.
