Following the latest advice from the government, the BMC office in Manchester is temporarily closing from 5pm on Tuesday 24 March. We'll be back as soon as we can - until then stay safe.
With all our staff working from home, we are operating as normal across many areas. However, some aspects of the BMC’s work have changed.
You can still buy BMC Travel Insurance but remember that it will not cover any claim in any way caused by or resulting from Covid-19 claims.
