IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19 including mutations) AND YOUR AGEAS TRAVEL INSURANCE

Because the World Health Organisation declared the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak a pandemic on 11th March 2020 this is now a known event. This affects the cover provided by Ageas Travel Insurance policies.

Any policies purchased on or after 16/03/2020 will not include cover under any section (apart from the Medical Expenses section) for claims directly or indirectly caused by the Coronavirus. This includes any preventative containment or delay measures.

For any policies issued before 16/03/2020 cover remains as per the policy terms and conditions.

Our policies will not provide any cover if the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) are advising against all but essential travel to your destination. In the present circumstances as the FCO advice on foreign travel is susceptible to rapid and significant change, we strongly recommend that you visit the FCO website to check the up to date advice against your actual or potential travel plans before purchasing travel insurance.
