Coronavirus Travel Insurance

Before jetting off, it’s essential to take out travel insurance with Coronavirus cover. Although restrictions have lessened, it’s important to put the protection in place to feel at ease, in case the unforeseeable occurs before your trip or when you’re away.

Holiday mode is back on. Dust off your passport and get your suitcase ready. With restrictions easing and the world becoming a lot more accessible again, it’s time to book that much-needed break away. Whether it’s a sunny escape, venturing across the globe on a sabbatical or a city break for the weekend, it’s time to reignite your passion for the world.

All our policies offer some form of COVID-19 protection including; cancellation cover if you’re made redundant or test positive for coronavirus before you go away, and emergency medical cover if you fall ill abroad and need treatment or have to be bought home early. If you want further coronavirus protection for your trip, you can also purchase our optional COVID-19 Extension.

To see all the COVID-19 cover we offer, check out the below:
