Earthquake / Tsunami in Japan
There has been considerable coverage in the media of the situation in Japan, following the devastating earthquake and tsunami. While rescue efforts continue in the north east of the country, the situation is evolving due to the damage to a nuclear facility in the region. Regular bulletins are being issued by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and updates are available from their website. A link can be found at the foot of this note. For individuals indemnified by a Zurich travel policy, cover exists for both cancellation and curtailment.
If you have any customers currently in Japan or maybe planning to travel there in the foreseeable future, then we suggest that they contact you or their local claims office.
Alternatively, they can contact our UK Major Incident Manager,
