Get added Peace of Mind With Cover For Covid-19.
Travel Insurance for holidays up to 20 months away.
The coronavirus vaccine has provided fresh hope of a return to a more normal way of life, with holidays top of the list for many people in 2021.
International travel is back under a traffic light system, but we understand you may still be concerned about the impact Coronavirus may have on your holiday plans.
That’s why we can now offer enhanced Covid-19 cover with some of our Travel Insurance policies – and we can now provide cover for holidays up to 20 months away, so if you need something to look forward to, you can protect yourself too.
While all of our policies include cover for emergency medical expenses (including 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 need to cancel because you contract Covid-19 before you travel*
- You need to cancel because you are required to self-isolate*
- You incur additional costs due to being denied boarding at the airport (with Covid-19 symptoms)*
Plus, if you need to move your holiday due to coronavirus you can amend the dates on your policy.
*Note that terms vary between insurer. To make it clear what is included, when you get a quote you will see that the policies that offer enhanced cover are clearly marked. There is also a ‘Covid-19’ document to each scheme, which you can see alongside the price.
