Added Peace of Mind With Cover For Covid-19
After weeks of restrictions the government has given the green light for holidays, with popular destinations including France, Italy and Greece all on the FCO’s ‘safe to travel’ and ‘quarantine-free’ lists. But while the skies may be reopening and you can now travel again, we understand you may still be concerned about the impact Covid-19 may have on your holiday.
That’s why we can now offer enhanced Covid-19 cover with some of our policies, for holidays up to 12 months away. While all of our policies include cover for emergency medical expenses (if you were to contract Coronavirus on holiday) we now also have some schemes that will provide additional peace of mind, including cover if:
- You contract Covid-19 before your holiday and cannot travel*
- You’re required to self-isolate and cannot travel*
- You’re denied boarding at the airport due to Covid-19 symptoms*
Plus, if you need to move your holiday due to coronavirus you can amend the dates on your policy, with no charge, up to 365 days into the future. When you compare quotes online you will see that the policies that offer this enhanced cover are clearly marked, and to help provide further clarity we have attached a ‘Covid-19’ document to each insurer, which you can see alongside the price. (*Currently offered on our AXA bronze, silver and gold policies only.)
