Although the company already has policies in place specific to Covid-19, this new addition will mean that holidaymakers are covered if new restrictions come in place.

Travel advice continuously changing

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the FCDO has been changing travel restrictions for different countries, in line with their own coronavirus infection rates.

In some cases, it has changed the advice for a specific country, advising against “all but essential travel” with less than 48 hours’ notice.

However, if this situation arises in the future then Jet2’s new FCDO cover means that travellers will be protected either before they travel or if they are already in the destination.

Jet2’s new travel policy

The new cover will automatically be included in all new Single Trip Travel Insurance policies to Europe, bought on or after 17 September 2020.

This cover will include up to £10 million in medical cover, £5,000 cancellation cover, and £2,000 baggage cover.

It will also be added free of charge to any existing single trip policies to Europe, which were bought between 9 April and 16 September 2020.

During the coronavirus pandemic, the auto insurance industry has offered over $10 billion in rebates on premiums for policyholders. But after all the rebates and discounts offered, customer satisfaction with car insurance providers has fallen, according to a study by J.D. Power Insurance Intelligence.

Most people only think about insurance when they need it. As a result, reads the study, “one of the biggest drivers of that decline in satisfaction is a general lack of awareness among customers” — that is, once people who had never really called their insurance companies started dealing with them during the pandemic, those customers were unhappy with the experience. The J.D. Power study found customers want “some level of personalization in every interaction,” and they weren’t getting it. 

The study found that as the pandemic worsened, so did customer satisfaction. Most customers said they never even received information about the COVID-19 related rebates. 

The study found that historically, customer satisfaction with car insurance providers is usually around 88% and a good indicator of loyalty and retention. In March 2020, before the COVID-19 lockdown, customer
