Our policy would only provide cover if your venue is unable to hold your wedding due to the outbreak of infectious or contagious disease, the venue is closed by the relevant authority, or the death, injury or sickness of you or your
close relative that would make continuance of the wedding inappropriate, subject to the policy terms and conditions.
Please find below the relevant elements of cover from the Cancellation or Rearrangement Section on page 6 and the definition of Close Relative from page 4 of the attached policy wording along with some FAQ’s which will hopefully answer
some of your queries.
In the event that the government and or local authority declared a lock down on a particular area and banned any public gatherings then this would be covered as long as the policy was purchased
prior to this announcement.
If the FCO has advised against travel, an area has been put on lock down or all public events cancelled prior to booking the wedding or purchase of a policy, cover would not be provided
