The limits on personal cash cover in Thomas Cook travel insurance policies is being raised for holidaymakers travelling to Greece this summer.
The limit is increased from £250 to £400 for adults on Silver policies and from £500 to £650 for those on Gold policies.
This means that a family of four travelling to Greece will have up to £1,500 of personal cash – £650 per adult and £100 per child under 16 – cover under the top travel insurance policy.
The move came as the travel group said it was “business as usual” in Greek resorts, despite the country’s financial turmoil.
Cook said: “Greece has always been, and continues to be, an incredibly popular and important destination for Thomas Cook and great value for our holidaymakers.
“The feedback from the team on the ground – and indeed returning holidaymakers – has been that it is business as usual in the resorts, with customers continuing to enjoy their holidays with minimal disruption.
“We are working with our in destination teams and hotels to closely monitor the situation on the ground.
“Customers who have already booked with us should not be impacted as all pre-paid services are provided by Thomas Cook.
“We have existing contracts with hotels and airlines and we are comfortable that there is enough cash within destination to continue to provide the quality holidays our guests have booked and expect from us.”
Holidaymakers travelling to Greece this summer continue to be advised to take euros to cover the duration of their holiday, even though no limit imposed on the amount of cash that can be withdrawn by international credit and debit cards, or card transactions.
