Returning Early to the Republic of Ireland
If you have to return to the Republic of Ireland under Section B (Medical Expenses), our Emergency Assistance Service must authorise this. If they do not, this could mean that we will not provide cover or we may reduce the amount we pay for your return to the Republic of Ireland.
If you have to return to the Republic of Ireland under Section A1 (Cancellation and Curtailment), please contact Travel Isurance Ireland Medical Screening Healthline immediately on your return. You must obtain a medical certificate from a Medical Practitioner to confirm the necessity to return home prior to curtailment of the trip due to death, bodily injury or serious illness.
