Buying Travel Insurance During A Pandemic

There is only a week to go before Australia finally open its international borders, at least to its own citizens and residents. Whilst these are very exciting times especially for those who have a trip or two planned over the festive season, it is very important for all travellers to be insured. Buying travel insurance in a pandemic is not an easy task because many (if not most) insurers do not cover any pandemics. However, there are now a few exceptions available to Australian travellers.

What should you look out for in a good travel insurance policy?

You should definitely keep an eye out for the exclusion of all claims related to Covid-19. Most insurers have this plastered on the main page of their website, others have been more sneaky and have put this exclusion in their fine print.

Warning – Exclusion Of Covid-19 Related Claims

Travelling during a pandemic can involve a higher risk of flight cancellation and delays, misconnections and probably worst of all, being diagnosed with the virus and/or being put into quarantine. Medical and quarantine costs can be exorbitant in many parts of the world, not to mention the subsequent loss of prepaid flights, hotels and tours, if you were put into quarantine. Therefore, a good travel policy would cover all this eventualities and one of such is provided by CoverMore Australia.
