Am I covered for extra accommodation and flights if I test positive abroad and need to self-isolate?

If you are diagnosed with COVID-19 when abroad, and the FCDO has not advised against all, or all but essential travel to your holiday destination, you can be covered for:

  • Medical expenses (including transportation to the nearest suitable hospital) for the immediate
    needs of an unforeseen medical emergency, when deemed necessary by a recognised Doctor and agreed by our Medical Officer.
  • Additional travelling costs to repatriate you home when recommended by our Medical Officer.
  • Additional travel and accommodation costs as authorised by our Assistance Company up until our Medical Officer advises that you can be repatriated home
