Click here to view common scenarios to help you understand how your policy covers Coronavirus*
Any policy sold by CoverForYou includes cover for any medical claim due to Coronavirus* while travelling so long as you are travelling to an area where no FCDO or other regulatory authority advice against travel exists. We include cover for cancellation due to you falling ill with Coronavirus* and being unable to travel or being required to self isolate, subject to medical certification or an official test result. We additionally include cover for curtailment due to the death of a close relative due to Coronavirus*
Any new** policy will not cover any cancellation due to government restriction on travel due to Coronavirus* or any future pandemic (for example the FCDO or other regulatory authority advising against all travel or all but essential travel to your destination or your flights being cancelled).
Your policy will be valid for travel to the countries shown on your certificate of insurance so long as you are travelling to an area where no Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) or other regulatory authority advice against travel exists.
