Coronavirus Travel Insurance Policies

With the COVID-19 pandemic, travel has become an ongoing challenge, whether for holidays or business. Most travel insurance policies are completely invalid if you visit a country against FCDO advice. So, if the FCDO state that they “advise against all travel” to a country, or they “advise against all but essential travel”, most travel policies will not cover you at all, if you choose to go anyway. Until recently, the FCDO has advised against all but essential travel anywhere but has now published a list of countries where it is deemed OK to travel. You can view this list here.

Unfortunately, this list can change, as infection rates worsen in certain countries and they are taken off the “safe” list. In these uncertain times, it is important to ensure that your travel insurance is not invalidated if you choose to visit countries that are not on the list.

To get a quote for Navigator Silver, Navigator Gold or Navigator Diamond, select one of these policies from the list on this page.

Our High Risk Voyager policy will cover you if you travel to a country against FCDO advice and will even cover medical claims for Covid 19, irrespective of FCO advice. However, it is primarily for working trips to high risk areas, though leisure trips up to a maximum duration of 31 days can be covered.

The rest of our policies are invalid if you travel against FCDO advice.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I be covered if I visit a country against FCDO advice?

Our Navigator Silver, Navigator Gold & Navigator Diamond policies are NOT valid if you visit a country against FCDO advice. Our High Risk Voyager policy is the only policy that we offer which is valid for travelling against FCDO advice

Am I covered for COVID-19 if I catch COVID when I have travelled to a country which is exempt from the FCDO travel advice such as “advise against all but essential travel”?

Our policies will cover Medical claims for COVID-19, as long as you are not travelling against FCDO advice.

What about Cancellation or Journey Disruption claims arising from COVID-19?

At the current time, our policies will not cover Cancellation or Journey Disruption claims arising from COVID-19.

Can I cancel my policy, if I decide not to travel due to COVID, or if my flight gets cancelled due to COVID?

If you cancel within your 14-day cooling-off period, you will get a full refund. After that, it drops to 50% refund. However, you can change dates without charge, if you choose to postpone rather than cancel. If you postpone to dates outside of the contract period of your policy, you may have to pay any difference in cost, if the price on the new contract is higher.
