Travel insurance carriers release position statements when current events affect coverage. Travel plans to Greece could be impacted by the civil unrest in the country. The following is a statement from CSA on the strikes in Greece.
Labor Strike in Greece
Greek labor unions have announced a general strike for next week, to protest planned reforms to the debt-ridden country’s rickety pension system. The two main public and private sector groups said in a joint statement on May 12 that the walkout was set for May 20, 2010. The strike will cancel flights, ferry and rail services. Certain CSA Travel Protection plans offer coverage for some effects of labor strikes. Customers are strongly encouraged to read their Certificate of Insurance or Insurance Policy for details regarding their available coverage. For those plans that do offer coverage for effects of labor strikes, please note that there is no coverage for this specific event under any plans purchased on or after May 12, 2010.
