Single trip insurance cover extension

We welcome the Government’s announcement to assist with repatriation given the challenges that many people stuck abroad are facing. ABI members are committed to supporting their customers who are stuck abroad at this difficult time. 

Most travel insurance policies already automatically extend so that people can continue to be covered against the risk of emergency medical treatment when they are stuck abroad due to ongoing travel restrictions. 

Sometimes these extensions have a limit of up to 30 days, however, given the exceptional circumstances leading ABI members will look to extend this protection to cover the risk of emergency medical treatment for up to a minimum of 60 days, provided customers are making every effort to return home.
