(Advice as at 15 December 2020; update to advice of 19 March 2020)
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to impact travellers’ plans globally. Numerous governments worldwide have placed restrictions on travel or have banned travel altogether. Travellers are advised to closely monitor these warnings and restrictions as they may change with little or no warning. Please read the latest government and health advice to see if your planned travel is affected.
Whether or not your policy can cover you for events relating to COVID-19 will depend on:
Check your policy wording as exclusions may apply, including but not limited to exclusions for contagious disease, epidemics, or pandemics.
Cover is not available for any event relating to COVID-19 for travel to and/or from China.
For other destinations, check your policy wording as exclusions may apply, including but not limited to exclusions for contagious disease, epidemics, or pandemics.
Cover is not available for any event relating to COVID-19 for all destinations.
Following the release of a new Travel Insurance Direct product, we can offer cover for some Coronavirus related events. Refer to the terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions of your policy wording for further information.
Note: Our travel insurance will not cover you for losses arising from COVID-19 if you plan to travel to, travel to, or remain in a country or region for which the Australian Government has issued a ‘Do Not Travel’ warning in relation to COVID-19.
