In response to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention’s (CDC) recent inbound travel requirement, which stipulates that international travellers must present a negative Covid test within three days prior to entering the US, AIG has launched its Lodging Expense Bundle – covering up to a total of US$500 per person for additional lodging expenses that may arise should travellers test Covid for positive before returning to the US.
“We understand there are increasing numbers of people who feel ready to travel internationally, but they want additional safeguards in place, including financial coverage, in case they should need to remain at their destination country longer than originally planned,” said Jeff Rutledge, CEO, AIG Travel. “This new offering will help people to once again travel with confidence.”
Customised bundle available to certain travellers
AIG Travel adds that residents of US states and the District of Columbia travelling to Costa Rica will have access to a customised version of the Lodging Expense Bundle to address the country's new entry requirement, which mandates that US-based visitors must secure and show proof of a travel insurance policy that includes up to a total of $2,000 in lodging expense coverage.
As such, AIG Travel is offering a customised version – by way of its ‘Preferred’ or ‘Deluxe’ travel insurance plan – to Costa Rica-bound US travellers, covering up to a total of $2,000 per person in additional lodging expenses.
