Many government agencies and news outlets have reported that the Taal volcano has erupted and is spewing ash and lava more than 100 kilometres (60 miles) into the surrounding area, disrupting flights in and out of Manila Airport.
Various airlines have already rearranged, re-routed and/or cancelled flights in and out of the Philippines and may continue to do so over the coming days.
As this event is now widely reported in the media, any policies purchased after 9.30am on Sunday 12 January 2020 UTC will not offer cover for claims for cancellation or delay of travel that arise from this event.
Note: Cover offered by travel insurance policies issued and managed by nib Travel Services (Australia) Pty may vary. Please read your policy wording for full details of cover.
