T5 fiasco: Insurers refuse to cover baggage loss

"According to the Association of British Insurers many companies now regard travelling with British Airways through Terminal 5 as a foreseeable and avoidable risk - given that almost all destinations can be reached from Heathrow using other airlines.

"The general view is if you are taking out a policy now, you may well find that your travel insurance won't cover you for lost baggage through the terminal," a spokesman said.

"That it is because you will already be aware of the problems of the problems at T5 and hardly expect to be covered.

"The golden rule is you should check with your insurer before taking out a policy and booking through Terminal 5."
