Atlas Insurance has added COVID-19 to its travel insurance product offer, ensuring that travellers insured with Atlas will be covered in relation to certain COVID-19-related difficulties.
Commenting on the upgrade to the Atlas Travelpak policy, Managing Director and CEO of Atlas Insurance Matthew von Brockdorff affirmed, “with several countries achieving encouraging results in the fight against COVID-19, it was only normal that people are now starting to consider their travel plans again.”
“For this reason, Atlas Insurance has upgraded its Travelpak policy, by offering coverage for travellers who might be faced with COVID-19-related difficulties when abroad. The product will certainly provide the needed peace of mind to our customers, who are eager to travel once again,” he continued.
The cover is at no additional cost to the regular premium and is intended to provide coverage in circumstances of cancellations and other eventualities due to a number of circumstances resulting from COVID-19. It will allow travellers to claim any cancellation expenses if they contract COVID-19 in the 14 days before they are due to travel and will also cover them if they are denied boarding because they are told that they are showing symptoms of COVID-19.
The COVID-19 cover will also allow travellers to claim expenses for a missed departure due to an unusually long delay for results to be received, or cancellations due to a close relative, travelling companion or host abroad contracting COVID-19. Travellers are also covered if they are forced to quarantine or are hospitalised due to COVID-19 while abroad.
