Due to the widespread media reports of Coronavirus (Covid-19), and the World Health Organization (WHO) announcement declaring Covid-19 a pandemic, Covid-19 is a foreseen or known event. If you are purchasing a new policy, certain covers will not apply.
Laya Travel insurance provides cover for the following Covid-19 related events:
a) for trip cancellation (Section A of the policy document attached) if 1) an Insured Person, 2) a person who an Insured Person has booked to travel with 3) a relative or friend living abroad who an Insured Person had planned to stay with or 4) a Business Associate has a confirmed and documented COVID-19 diagnosis at the time of departure which prevents the Insured Person from travelling.
b) for medical expenses (Section B of the policy document) and cutting your trip short (Section C of the policy document) coverage if an Insured Person has a confirmed and documented diagnosis of Covid-19 whilst on a covered trip to a country that the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has allocated a security status of Normal Precautions or High Degree of Caution to.
Please note that travel to a country that the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has allocated a security status of Avoid Non-Essential Travel or Do Not Travel to is excluded by our policy.
All other Covid-19 related claims are excluded.
