Our travel insurance products do not cover losses arising from epidemics or pandemics as per the Exclusions mentioned in Policy Wordings. It is very important that you read the EXCLUSIONS of Policy Wordings carefully and make sure you understand exactly “what is covered” and “what is not covered”, and what to do if you need to claim.
We strongly recommend that you get information about the situation in your travel destination before you purchase any of our travel insurance policies.
You should also monitor official updates regarding the Coronavirus through The World Health Organization to be informed on the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) worldwide.
