  • What is Holiday Plus Travel Insurance?

    Holiday Plus Travel Insurance covers the things you would expect to find on a travel insurance policy (Baggage, Money, Cancellation etc.) but it recognises that your Private Medical Insurance (PMI) policy covers you for Medical Expenses abroad, up to the limit in your PMI policy. The Holiday Plus Travel Insurance tops this up to an unlimited amount. As Holiday Plus Travel Insurance only pays if your costs exceed the cover you have under your PMI, you can save money on travel insurance premiums.

  • Does it matter what type of Private Medical Insurance policy I hold?

    Yes, it is mandatory that your Private Medical Insurance policy provides cover in respect of overseas medical expenses; otherwise you cannot buy Holiday Plus Travel Insurance.

  • What happens if I change my Private Medical Insurance cover or provider?

    Provided your Private medical Insurance is with VHI, Irish Life or Laya, and it provides cover for emergency medical expenses overseas you will still be eligible for the Health Plus product. If you change your Private Medical Insurance cover, you must ensure that:

    • your new PMI provides this cover
    • that there is no break or gap in your cover between the old and the new PMI
    • Your PMI covers you for the duration of your Health Plus Holiday Travel Insurance policy.
  • Can I get instant cover and policy documents - I’m travelling today?

    Yes! As soon as your credit card details have been validated, we will confirm your cover on screen, and documents will be available within your Bank of Ireland Insurance account.

  • Can I change my policy?

    If you move house, we will reissue your policy for your new address. If you need to add winter sports cover or want to increase the number of people insured, you can call us on low call 1890 719 428. Provided you are not on holiday at the time, we can cancel your policy, give you an appropriate return of premium and arrange a new policy for you.

  • How do I renew my annual multi trip policy?

    We will remind you 4 weeks before your policy expires, and offer you the opportunity to buy another policy.

  • What is Car Hire Excess Cover?

    When you hire a car in Europe or the UK, your rental agreement should include a Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and cover for Third Party Liability and Theft. There is normally an excess applicable to the CDW and Third Party Liability and Theft part of the agreements which you would be liable to pay in the event of a claim. This excess in most cases can range from €100 – €2000. The Car Hire Excess cover is designed to allow you to claim back the costs of this excess (in full).
