Protecting Your Data
We collect and maintain personal information to allow our insurers to underwrite and administer the policies that we issue. All personal information is treated with the utmost confidentiality and with appropriate levels of security. We won’t keep your information longer than necessary. Your information will be protected from accidental or unauthorised disclosure. We will only reveal your information if it is allowed by law, authorised by you, to prevent fraud or in order that we can liaise with our agents in the administration of this policy.
Insurers share information with each other to aid the prevention of fraudulent claims. In the event of a claim, information is placed on industry registers for analysis. Under the Data Protection Act, you have the right of access to your personal records held on our files and we will provide this information should you request it via a subject access request form.
To provide better customer service, your calls may be recorded and monitored for quality and compliance purposes.
You should share your policy schedule and policy wording with anyone insured under the policy. We will only deal with the organiser of the policy with regard to travel insurance.
Wapp is unable to guarantee any quote provided beyond the end of the day, that it is produced. We reserve the right to pass on any increases to premiums at any time.
All prices shown included IPT (Insurance Premium Tax) at the current rate.
Subscription and Trip prices may change. We will always give you 30 days’ notice of any change in price that are made by us.
Age related price changes will start the day a traveller moves into a new age bracket, unless you are on a covered trip.
Age brackets are:
0 years – 17 years
18 years – 60 years
61 years – 75 years
76 years – 85 years
The daily price shown at the start of a trip, will be the daily price you pay throughout the trip. These prices don’t include activities, that can be added at an additional daily premium.
Our Administration Charges
We are normally remunerated by commission, which is paid by the insurer. It is deducted from the premium, but we also reserve the right to supplement or replace this with a fee for our services when arranging, amending, and cancelling any insurance policy.
Method of Payment
You can pay for your insurance by credit or debit card. Card details are taken but not stored by WAPP.
When you register, we will validate your payment card. If you sign up to our subscription service, we will do this when you make your first payment. If you don’t sign up to our subscription service, we will send a request of authorisation to your card issuer to validate your chosen payment card. With the latter, no monies will be taken.
Your subscription costs will be taken on the first day of every month, using the default payment card you have set up.
Your trip costs will be taken 1-2 days after you return to your country of residence, or you reach the maximum trip length stated in your policy wording.
If we aren’t able to take payment on the first attempt, we will try again after 2 calendar days. If we are still unable to take payment at the second attempt, we will email you, asking you to arrange payment within 7 calendar days. If you still haven’t paid or contacted us to arrange payment of the amount owing by the date given in the email, your policy will be cancelled, and we will commence action on recoveringoutstanding costs / charges / debts, where you’ll have to pay all reasonable costs incurred.
If your default card is cancelled or the card details change, you agree to notify Wapp Limited of the updated card information. You can do this in the app, using the web app or by calling our customer service team on 0330 006 8020. If you fail to give us updated card information, you authorise Wapp Limited to obtain the updated details from your card issuer, if available.
We act as an agent for the insurer for the collection of premiums and payment of premiums. Your money is held in an Insurer Trust Account, which is managed in accordance with the FCA statutory trust rules. This means that premiums are treated as being received by the insurer when received in our bank account and any premium refund is treated as received by you when it is actually paid over to you.
Cancelling your policy
We hope you love the service so much that you never want to cancel, but if you do, you can cancel your policy in the account section of the app or web app. In order to cancel your policy, you must be in the UK.
If you’re not able to do this, you can email our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org, or calling 0333 006 8020 (Monday to Saturday 8:30am-6pm).
Cancelling your subscription
You can cancel your subscription whenever you’re not on a trip. If you do cancel it, you’ll receive the benefits of the subscription up to the end of the calendar month in which you cancelled it.
You have 14 calendar days from the start of your policy to cancel it for a full refund, – as long as you haven’t started a trip, made an amendment to your policy, or made a claim during this period.
If you have started a trip, made an amendment to your policy, or made a claim during this period, then you will be entitled to a pro-rata refund for the remaining number of days you have paid for, and not used.
If you cancel your policy outside your cooling off period, then you won’t be eligible for a pro-rata refund, except in the following circumstances.
- Your policy is cancelled by us, because you are no longer eligible for cover, or we can’t cover you for your medical conditions, or you have reached the maximum age limit of the policy.
- You cancel your policy during a medical amendment.
If your trip hasn’t been recorded accurately and you have been incorrectly charged, you will need to contact us within 28 days of the trip ending, for us to make a change to it. We will then refund the original cost back to the card you paid on. The new charge will be collected from your card within 2 days.
Refunds can take up to 5 working days to reach your card. Where we are unable to refund back to the original card that payment was taken from, you will need to contact us to arrange a BACs refund, these can take up to 14 days to reach your chosen account.
Changes to your subscription
You can make changes to your subscription cost any time, as long as you’re in the UK.
If you Increase the value of your cancellation and curtailment cover or add Travel Disruption Cover, the cost of your monthly subscription will go up. These changes will start immediately.
If you decrease the value of your cancellation and curtailment cover or add Travel Disruption Cover, the cost of your monthly subscription will reduce. These changes will take place from the start of the next month.
Other changes made to your policy can also affect the cost of your monthly subscription.
- Adding/removing travellers to your policy
- Adding or removing medical conditions to/from any traveller on your policy
Where you make a change to your policy, that affects the cost of your monthly subscription, any additional cost/credit that is applied, will carry over to your next subscription payment.
If a credit is applied and the value of the credit is greater than the cost of your next subscription payment, the difference will be refunded to your payment card, at your next subscription payment date.
Changes to Your Underwriter
We reserve the right to engage a new insurance provider for part or all of your policy in the future. Should this happen, we will write to inform you of the change, providing details of your new provider as well as any amendments to your policy. Through the purchase of your policy, you consent to the potential transfer of your cover and any personal data held about you being shared with an alternative insurance provider.
If at any point you wish to withdraw your consent to this, please call Wapp Customer Service on 0333 006 8020 (Monday to Saturday 8:30am-6pm).
Our travel alerts can help you to stay up to date with the latest safety news in your current location and/or at a location you have favourited. You should use them whilst making your own risk assessment when travelling. Alerts provided by Riskline do not automatically guarantee cover for that event by your policy. You must agree to the travel alert conditions before you can access them.
Travel alerts are provided to you by Riskline.
Wapp & Riskline are unable to warrant that all information and updates are complete, adequate and error free. You should always check with official sources if any information worries you.
Please note that travel alerts are provided by Riskline and are completely independent from the travel insurance cover provided by Wapp. Information provided in the travel alerts does not automatically mean that a claim arising from that incident will be covered by your travel insurance.
