Expanded Coverage Now Available During Coronavirus Pandemic

Last updated on 03/28/2023

WARWICK, R.I., Dec. 7, 2020 -- InsureMyTrip, the nation's first-and-largest unbiased travel insurance comparison site, announces new features to help travelers easily find travel insurance during the coronavirus pandemic, as more coverage options are now available.

"Travelers now have more options when it comes to travel insurance, as the industry adjusts to handling the COVID-19 pandemic," says InsureMyTrip Director of eCommerce Cheryl Golden.

Expanded Travel Insurance Coverage

More traditional travel insurance companies are now expanding or adapting coverage for travelers during the coronavirus pandemic. Here are some general examples:

  • Must visit doctor or hospital during a trip due to COVID-19 illness
  • Get sick with COVID-19 and must cancel a trip
  • Physician orders a quarantine before trip
  • Lost a job during the coronavirus pandemic by no-fault of your own

InsureMyTrip also recommends travelers strongly consider a Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR) upgrade. This upgrade offers the most trip cancellation flexibility and is the only option available to cover fear of travel. Full terms of coverage will be listed in state-specific policy. If eligibility requirements are met, reimbursement is 50-70 percent of pre-paid non-refundable trip cost.

The unbiased travel insurance comparison site also released a groundbreaking "COVID-19 recommendation tool" to guide travelers towards plans that may be best suited to cover COVID-19-related travel concerns.

"This simple recommendation tool can save travelers hours of searching online for travel insurance that may offer coverage for certain COVID-19 related issues," says Golden.

Note: Traditional travel insurance does not offer cancellation coverage for fear of travel, whether related to COVID-19 or not. Cancel For Any Reason is required.
