Coronavirus

What cover do you offer for Covid-19?

Customers are covered if they, someone they are travelling with or a close relative (as defined within the policy) contracts coronavirus and / or if they or someone they are travelling with has to quarantine because they have been exposed to coronavirus or have been contacted by a doctor, track and trace, or another public health board before their trip and cannot travel, so long as they were unaffected and able to travel at the time they purchased the policy and at the time they booked their trip.

In terms of cover, all our policies, irrespective of purchase date, include cover for emergency medical expenses due to coronavirus or if you have to cancel because you or a close relative become ill with coronavirus.

New and existing customers will also be covered for emergency medical claims related to coronavirus in countries which are exempt from the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office’s (FCDO) or another regulatory body’s advice against all but essential travel.

I want to postpone my trip, what should I do?

If your transport provider or tour operator moves your trip destination or dates due to the outbreak, then we will class your original booking date as your booking date, therefore the exclusion for new trips booked will not apply. You will need to amend your insurance to reflect your new dates and there may be an additional premium for doing this. If your trip is cancelled and you book a new/alternative trip, then your policy will not cover cancellations or some curtailments relating to coronavirus. General rules regarding FCDO advice and travel restrictions will continue to apply.

Can I travel to other countries during the pandemic?

Before you go, please check whether it is safe to travel to your destination and whether the country is accepting tourists from other countries. Also check the Government and FCDO advice.

FCDO are advising against traveling to my country of destination. Should I still go?

If you choose to travel against FCDO advice (that is to a country, specific area, or event when the FCDO, or other regulatory authority in a country to/from which you are travelling, has advised against all but essential travel), your policy may be impacted.

For example, should you travel against FCDO advice that is in place due to COVID-19, your policy will not provide cover if you suffer with COVID-19 when abroad, but would provide cover for claims that are not directly or indirectly linked to Covid-19 for instance, if you broke your leg.
However, you would not be covered for cutting your trip short if the FCDO (or other regulatory authority) recommended evacuation from a country or a specific areas you have travelled to, when there was a warning against all or all but essential travel in place when you departed on your trip, and you continued to travel anyway.

Do I need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19?

We do not require you to be fully vaccinated to take out a policy with us. However, our policies don’t cover you if you fail to hold the relevant documentation required by the destination country or your airline (or other public transport you might use). For example, if your destination country requires you to be fully vaccinated to enter the country and you fail to provide the documents confirming your vaccination status and therefore cannot travel, there is no cover under your policy.

I had Covid-19. Should I declare it as a medical condition?

If you were diagnosed with Covid-19, you will need to declare this as a pre-existing medical condition.

Brexit

Will my policy be affected by Brexit?

It is highly unlikely that your travel policy will be affected by Brexit. However, before travelling, please check your policy documents to see what you’re covered for.

Do I need to take out additional cover for travelling to Europe now?

Currently, you do not need to take out an additional cover for travelling to Europe. If this changes, we will notify you

Other Popular Questions:

What should I do if my tour operator / airline goes into administration?

If you are due to go on a package holiday, then your booking should be financially protected by a scheme such as ATOL. You should have been given an ATOL certificate (or similar) when you booked your holiday, which includes details of what to do if the company goes into liquidation. If the company does go into liquidation, customers should visit the Civil Aviation Authority’s (CAA) website for guidance.

If you only booked flights, these may also be protected by a system such as ATOL, although it is less common. If you do have protection you would have been given a certificate (or similar) when you booked your flights, which includes details of what to do if the company goes into liquidation.

If you purchased some or all of your flights or booked your accommodation separately using a credit card, you may be able to arrange a refund from your credit card provider or PayPal. You may also be able to claim on your insurance, but this will depend on the level of cover you have in place and usually your excess will be deducted from the amount to be repaid.

My tour operator, airline or destination is offering coronavirus insurance as part of my trip do I still need a traditional insurance policy?

It’s important you check the insurance policy your tour operator, airline or destination provides, to make sure it covers everything you need. In some cases, it will only provide limited cover if you contract coronavirus while on your trip. Therefore, if you require cover for other issues, such as medical incidents abroad not relating to coronavirus, lost baggage, travel disruption etc. you are likely to still need a traditional insurance policy.

If I am quarantined in a hotel, do I have to pay for the room?

If you are confined to your hotel under doctor’s orders for at least 24 hours, we will pay for the room, up to the policy limit. And if you paid in advance for excursions or activities that you can’t do because of your quarantine, we will cover that, up to a certain amount.

What if I miss my flight because of quarantine?

If your airline or travel provider cannot book you on a later flight, we will cover an alternate flight subject to a valid claim.
