On February 24th the WHO confirmed multiple epidemics in different parts of the world. On March 11th, the WHO declared the situation a pandemic.
Our travel insurance products do not cover losses arising from epidemics or pandemics as per the Exclusions mentioned in our . It is very important that you read the Exclusions of the Policy Wording carefully and make sure you understand exactly “what is covered” and “what is not covered”, and what to do should you need to submit a claim.
We strongly recommend that you get information about the situation in your travel destination before you purchase any of our travel insurance policies.
IMPORTANT: Given the rapid rise in travel bans, please first ensure that no travel ban is in place during your dates of travel prior to purchasing a travel insurance policy. Policies purchased during a known travel ban will not be valid during that period. We therefore highly recommend NOT to purchase travel insurance policies when such conditions exist
