Making a claim
We know that when you’re planning your holiday, the last thing you want to think about is needing to make a claim. That’s why we’ve put together this simple guide to tell you everything you need to know, when you need to know it.
First, you will need to contact the claims department of your travel insurance policy: Reactive Claims.
Please note, the emergency medical assistance team will help you during a medical emergency abroad – but you will still need to contact AllClear Travel Insurance Claims separately.
Also, if you need to make any changes to your policy, we can only do so after your claim has been registered.
This article will further explain each step of the process below.
As soon as possible after calling the emergency services or another medical care provider, you need to call the medical emergency assistance company. This is a 24 hour telephone line.
The contact details below show the emergency medical assistance numbers for all the policies available.
Emergency medical assistance numbers

The emergency medical assistance company will liaise with the hospital and medical professionals during the treatment process and, if needed, will arrange Repatriation when you’re well enough to travel.
