Do the trip protection plans cover Trip Cancellation due to COVID-19?

For the Safe Travels Journey and Safe Travels Voyager trip protection plans: These plans treat COVID-19 the same as any other illness for any illness related losses while you are insured. 
  • COVID-19 MEDICAL EXPENSES are covered and treated the same as any other sickness.
  • COVID-19 Coverage provides Trip Cancellation reimbursement for unused, nonrefundable insured trip cost if you are prevented from taking your trip IF you or your traveling companion become sick with COVID-19 before your trip is to start and a doctor states you cannot travel. *The timing of your travel protection plan purchase in relation to your diagnosis and trip date could impact your coverage.
  • COVID-19 is considered a "known event". Any trip cancellation or trip interruption claims related to travel restrictions or fear of travel due to COVID-19 will not be payable.
If you have not yet departed from home, this type of situation would apply to the Trip Cancellation benefit in these plans. *It may be required that the test be a Lab or technician-certified PCR or NAAT test and a Physician must advise to cancel the Trip on or before the Scheduled Departure Date.
If you have already begun your travels, this situation would apply to the Trip Interruption benefit in these plans.

Read your plan documents/policy certificate carefully to clearly understand more about what may be required. You can access the policy certificate through the live link next to your name on your policy confirmation email.

See the plan comparison in the box above for more details and links to the brochures and certificates for each plan.
