Virgin Money Travel Insurance - Claims & Emergency Help: Luggage

Luggage

  • How to claim

    If your luggage and personal effects have been lost or stolen, make sure you report it immediately to the police and get a written notice of your report. You'll need this to make a claim. If your luggage and personal effects are damaged or misplaced by the airline, or any other operator or accommodation provider, report it to an appropriate official and get a written report. And if any settlement offer was made, make sure you hold on to that documentation too.

    What you'll need:

    • Your Certificate of Insurance
    • Any original proof of ownership for the item/s you’re claiming
    • If you’ve reported your theft/loss/damage to any authority, we’ll need to see the report that confirms it
    • Confirmation of any compensation given to you by an at-fault operator (e.g. the airline responsible for losing your luggage)
    • Your travel itinerary

    Please note that depreciation will be applied to all Luggage and Personal Effects claims as reasonably determined by us.
