Coronavirus, or COVID-19 can be a life-threatening disease. In less than two months, there have been 2223 new reported cases globally after the first reported case in Huhan, China on the 31st December 2019. While not everyone who comes into contact with an infected person will contract the virus, it is important to practise common sense rules such as good hygiene. 
 
Travellers have expressed concern about entry in and out of areas where there are high incidences of the disease. We consider travel insurance a priority in travel. We will arrange this for you to ensure you and your family are fully protected. 

FAQs about travel insurance and the Coronavirus  

Will I be covered if I contract Coronavirus and need to cancel my trip? 

Yes, you are covered for unforeseen cancellation of your trip. For a valid claim to be processed you will require a medical certificate from a doctor confirming that you were not well enough to travel. 

Can I cancel my holiday and claim on my travel insurance? 

No, disinclination to travel is not covered as an insured peril. 
In the first instance you should contact your travel agent to request a refund of the costs or to change the dates of your trip. 
 
Some insurers will allow us to amend the dates or destination on your policy provided an alternative trip is booked/confirmed (terms may apply). 
If your trip has been cancelled due to Coronavirus insurers may offer a part of full refund of the policy. 

If I contract Coronavirus when I'm on holiday will I be covered on my travel insurance for medical treatment? 

Yes. Unforeseen medical expenses and repatriation cover is included on our policies provided a full and accurate declaration was made at the time of purchase. 

Can I still choose to travel if the FCO advises against it? 

No, travel insurance doesn’t cover customers under any section if they decide to travel against the advice of the FCO. 

Am I covered if I want to cut my trip short due to Coronavirus fears? 

No, in the first instance you should contact your travel agent or local authorities for advice. 
 
 
The effects of Coronavirus have been reported extensively on social media as well as online. However, it is important to receive accurate information from reputable organisations such as the World Health Organisation. While not everyone who comes into contact with an infected person will contract the virus, it is important to practise common sense rules such as good hygiene and respecting personal space. It is also important to note that not all cases result in fatality.
