PLEASE NOTE: If the FCDO changes its advice in relation to the country you are travelling to because of COVID-19 or another pandemic and you can't now travel, there will be no cover under this policy for cancellation of prepaid costs including but not limited to activities, accommodation and transport services. You should make enquiries with the providers and review their booking conditions to ensure they will offer a rebooking or refund in such circumstances. You may also want to consider paying these costs with a credit card or debit so you have the option of recovering from your credit card provider or your bank should the provider fail to honour the agreement to refund or rebook.
Cancellation due to a pandemic illness or for personal quarantine is not covered within the first 48 hours of the policy purchase date.
No cover applies to trips if the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advise against travel to your destination. You can read the FCDO's latest advice here.
