The news coverage around the current financial situation in Greece has led to our customers checking with us to see what cover they have with regard to cash under their Virgin Money Travel Insurance policy.
This also follows advice issued to travellers recommending that they increase the amount of cash they take to Greece, in case ATMs and banks cannot be used to withdraw money during their trip.
In response to those concerns, we have trebled current cash limits on our travel policies, for a defined period, for those customers already in Greece and those going to Greece under one of our travel policies.
In addition, if customers need to pay for their accommodation (room only) in cash, this will be covered in addition to the above cash limit increases.
We will review this situation as it evolves and, in any event, by 31 July 2015.
Customers should refer to their policy wording booklet for the cash limit that applies to their particular insurance policy to see how this temporary change of terms will affect them when travelling to Greece.
Virgin Money also urges all of its customers to take care and to take all necessary precautions to safeguard against theft whilst they may be carrying more cash than normal during this period.
