Coronavirus (Covid-19) – Important information

If you travel against current FCO advice, you will not be covered by any travel insurance.

All policies bought through us for exempt countries include cover for emergency medical expenses and repatriation if you get coronavirus while you’re abroad. Providing you do not travel against FCO advice.

Please read the policy documents before you buy. If you’re not sure about the cover, call the insurer and ask.

Please take care to answer all questions honestly and to the best of your knowledge.

If you don't, your policy may be cancelled or your claim rejected. When entering your details we strongly recommend you read the help text and important information we've provided.
