Compare travel insurance quotes from a range of UK travel insurers who provide cover for coronavirus / COVID-19.Get Cover
A single trip policy provides cover for one trip. A multi-trip policy provides cover for multiple trips over a 12-month period.
You can still get valid travel insurance for coronavirus / COVID-19 but there are some things you'll need to think about before you travel:
Coronavirus cover can be split into two parts: pre-holiday cover which includes things like cancellation cover if you have to cancel your holiday due to catching coronavirus or if you're denied boarding after a temperature test at the airport, and on-holiday cover which covers your medical and travel expenses if you fall ill with coronavirus while you're on holiday and need to go to hospital or return home.
Your travel insurer should pay your medical costs if you get coronavirus while you're on holiday, but some insurers may not cover cancellation costs, especially if you've booked your holiday through a travel agent or tour operator as you may be covered by their cancellation policy instead.
You should check the Policy Wording and any associated COVID-19 documents to see exactly what is covered by each policy before you buy. We provide all of this information in our comparison results when you click the 'more details' button on a policy.
If you've had coronavirus you'll still be able to get travel insurance and this shouldn't make any difference to your premium. You should make sure you still get insured even if you've tested positive for coronavirus in the past because your travel insurance policy may cover you for other unexpected things like having to find alternative accommodation if your hotel closes due to another guest testing positive while you're there.
Coronavirus was unknown to insurers before 2020 and is therefore unlikely to be covered by any policies purchased at an earlier date. However, if you have an existing policy it's worth contacting the insurer to see if they will add coronavirus cover to it as this may be cheaper than purchasing a brand new policy.
There's no guarantee that third party policies will provide coronavirus cover, especially if they were purchased before March 2020. When you purchased the policy you should have been sent a Policy Wording document containing full details of exactly what the policy covers. If there's no mention of coronavirus or COVID-19 in the Policy Wording then it's unlikely you're covered and you should check with the insurer who issued the policy.
