Does travel insurance cover the coronavirus/covid pandemic?
Travel insurance is unique to each traveller and coverage options will depend on the travel concerns most important to you. Coverage options that may apply to concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic include emergency medical, trip cancellation/interruption, and quarantine coverage. Carefully review your policy to ensure you have the appropriate coverage specific to your individual travel concerns. Some plans may exclude epidemics/pandemics and may not provide coverage for related issues. Please be sure to read the plan details carefully before purchasing and if you have questions, our Customer Care team is available to assist.
