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.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — We are on the doorstep of the holiday season, which means you might be thinking about traveling by air. This is year will different than any other given COVID-19 and financial issues within the airlines themselves.

Even thinking about what to do can likely zap the holiday spirit right out of you.

Travel insurance is something many may have skipped in the past, but now, you might want to rethink it. After all, you or someone in your family might be sick, remember it’s flu season too. So where do you begin?

“Cancel for any reason insurance is absolutely the only way to go,” said Ronni Fishkin at Mann Travels in Charlotte, NC. 

This type of insurance has different tiers, the cheaper policies cover some things, maybe even you getting sick, but what if someone else in the family is sick? What if you get into a fender bender on the way to the airport? What about rental cars? Remember it’s 2020, anything could go wrong.

And another question to consider — if you don’t want to spend more than you have to, can you get by without travel insurance?

Traveling now carries with it more uncertainty than ever before. If you plan on traveling anytime soon, one thing you can do to protect yourself is get a trip insurance policy that includes coronavirus coverage. Previously, many insurers excluded COVID-related claims due to the virus’ status as a foreseen event/pandemic. But now, some insurers are changing their tune.

What is covered

Coronavirus coverage falls into several categories:

  • Trip delay: Your trip is delayed due to changing COVID-related guidelines.
  • Travel medical coverage: You (or a covered travel companion) become ill with COVID-19 while traveling abroad and incur health care expenses or require an evacuation.

Of providers that are offering COVID policies, most are covering these expenses.

What is not covered
  • Countries with Level 4 travel advisories: Some insurers disclose that if a Level 4 Do Not Travel advisory is issued by the U.S. Department of State for a specific country, you will not receive coronavirus-related coverage. With cases surging in various countries unexpectedly, the list of Level 4 countries is constantly changing. Before booking a trip and purchasing a policy, make sure to check that the country does not have a Level 4 advisory.
  • Fear of getting sick while traveling: Canceling a trip because you’re afraid you’ll get sick does not qualify for coverage under your travel insurance policy. Travel insurance providers have a list of standard reasons that qualify for cancellation, including: car accident, jury duty, terrorist act, military duty and other extenuating circumstances. If you
