We know you're looking for extra peace of mind these days, which is why our top-notch travel insurance now includes that all-important COVID-19 cover. When you choose one of our Defaqto 5-star rated policies, you're covered if you’re contacted by NHS Test and Trace and need to self-isolate up to 14 days before you travel, or if you become ill with COVID-19 before you travel or while you're away. And with our single trip policies, you're covered if you go away against Foreign Office (FCDO) travel advice for COVID-19, even if it changes once you've booked. So book with confidence, knowing you're protected against the unexpected.
If the Foreign Office (FCDO) advise against all but essential travel to the destination you want to fly to because of COVID-19, you can still go as planned and our policies will protect you*. That’s the case if advice changes before you book, before you travel or while you’re there.
Rest assured you can recoup cancellation costs if you or your travel party become ill with COVID-19 (including up to £100 per person for a private COVID-19 test), or if you’re contacted by NHS Test and Trace and need to self-isolate up to 14 days before you leave the UK. The same applies if you’re made redundant (minimum two years employed) and have to cancel too.
*Cover for travelling against Foreign Office (FCDO) advice only applies to our single trip policies
Our great-value, Defaqto 5* travel policies include this as standard:
Great news - if you bought a policy with us on or after 9 April 2020, all of the above cover is included! Although the cover for travel against Foreign Office (FCDO) advice only applies to single trip policies.
