Aberdeenshire Council provides insurance cover for pupils and staff on offsite excursions. The policy covers medical expenses, personal accident, loss of baggage, cancellation, curtailment and change of itinerary (along with other sundry benefits) etc for worldwide trips and adventurous activities (including winter sports). The policy does not cover the loss or damage of personal items, such as watches, jewellery, tablets/mobiles phones etc unless the loss or damage is caused by an Aberdeenshire Council employee. People wishing to have insurance cover for such items will need to make their own arrangements separate to the Council’s policy.
Claims of Third Parties
