Your policies remain valid. The vast majority of our customers’ policies will not be affected by what happens at the end of the transition period.
If you purchased an Aviva policy in the UK and are currently – and will continue to be – permanently resident in the UK, cover under your policy will not be affected.
What impact does leaving the EU on 31 January 2020 have on my policy?
The UK formally left the EU on 31 January 2020, however the Government has agreed to a transition period with the EU that will last until the end of 2020. During this time all EU law, rules and regulations will continue to apply in the UK and between the UK and the EU. This means that your insurance arrangements will be unaffected during the transition period – for example, if you're planning on driving abroad this summer or using your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) when travelling in Europe, nothing will change until 1 January 2021.
What happens after the end of 2020 has yet to be agreed. So while there is nothing for you to do in the short-term, the UK’s longer-term relationship with the EU is less clear. We encourage you to continue to check back here as we get closer to the end of the year.
We’re monitoring political developments and engaging with our regulators so we can minimise any regulatory or operational difficulties that might arise. We’ll always aim to provide the service you expect.
We’ll update our website with further information, including any relevant actions you may need to take, as soon as possible. For more information on preparing for travel to the EU in the run-up to and after Brexit, visit www.gov.uk/visit-europe-brexit.
