What countries are open to UK travellers and safe to travel?
The Government has announced their travel corridor agreements with international countries, which means that UK travellers can now start to plan their 2020 summer holidays. Destinations include France, Greece, Turkey and Belgium and many more have opened their borders to British tourists. From the 10th July UK travellers will no longer need to quarantine upon arrival to England from over 50 countries.
The FCO has listed a number of international destinations which are ok to travel to, thanks to their reduced risk. However, the information is ever-changing so it is important to check before you book if your chosen destination has been marked as safe to travel by the FCO. If your destination is unsafe to travel, this will invalidate your travel insurance policy.
If my tour operator or airline makes changes to my travel date relating to Coronavirus what does this mean for my travel insurance?
If your trip dates are moved by your airline or tour operator and you have a single trip policy, your policy will still be valid but you will need to amend your policy dates. Luckily you can easily make changes to policy trip dates via our online form.
What to do if your airline or tour operator cancels your holiday due to reasons relating to Coronavirus.
If your airline or tour operator cancels your trip, it is their responsibility to compensate your losses and you will need to seek a refund from them.
Our policies will only provide medical cover relating to Coronavirus whilst abroad. If you fall ill with COVID-19 whilst on your trip or need to be brought back home due to failing ill with Coronavirus our policies will cover you.
Like most other insurance policies available on the market, customers won’t be able to submit a claim for any other reasons related to the Coronavirus, such as cancellation, curtailment, or abandonment. This is because Coronavirus is now very much a ‘known event’. However, we are able to change your single trip travel insurance cover dates if you are able to re-book your trip to a later date.
If you are no longer travelling and haven’t made a claim on your policy you would be entitled to a refund on your policy. You can submit your refund online by using our cancel your policy application.
