The new addition will apply to all live policies in a move that Staysure believes could kick-start the UK’s travel industry.
The policy for Covid-19 comes at no extra cost to existing or new policyholders and will ensure that Brits travelling overseas are covered for emergency medical and repatriation expenses if infected with the virus. The cover will only apply to trips taken to countries that the British government has said are safe to visit.
Ryan Howsam, Group CEO and Founder of Staysure, said: “We need to look at all our options at this time of coronavirus and keep moving ahead. At Staysure, we are well known for thinking of every eventuality and making sure that our customers have peace of mind when they travel. This new policy is no different. The coronavirus will be with us for some time and so we needed to put this into place as soon as possible."
