Today it’s a good idea to purchase CANCEL FOR ANY REASON aka CFAR insurance for your peace of mind. Covid-19 was declared a pandemic in March 2020. Therefore, any losses for trip cancellation, trip interruption and/or trip delay caused by or resulting from quarantine due to COVID-19 is not considered “Unforeseen” and will not be covered under the terms and conditions of Travelguard’s insurance policy.
However, this does not affect any Medical Benefits available under the insurance policy. If you contract COVID-19 prior to departure, you would be covered for Trip Cancellation, if you have a confirmed and documented diagnosis and/or you are medically unable to travel at the time of departure due to COVID-19. If you contract COVID-19 while on a covered trip, you would be covered for Medical Expense and Trip Interruption/ Curtailment benefits if you have a confirmed and documented diagnosis.”
MedJet is a medical transportation company we represent. In September Medjet introduced a policy that provides medical transport to Covid-19 patients back to their home hospital from select destinations.
