BIBA Travel Medical scheme offers COVID-19 cancellation and curtailment cover

14th July 2020

AllClear has announced that the BIBA Non-Standard Travel Medical scheme will offer enhanced COVID-19 cover for cancellation and curtailment. This is in addition to COVID-19 cover for emergency medical and repatriation expenses if Coronavirus is contracted whilst abroad.

The scheme, exclusive to BIBA members, provides specialist cover for customers who find obtaining travel insurance more challenging because of pre-existing medical conditions or age.

Garry Nelson, Head of Marketing at AllClear, commented: “We’re doing everything we can to make travel safe for those who would like to travel again this year. If a trip has to be cut short or a family member becomes ill with Coronavirus, or has to quarantine as a result of being medically diagnosed with Coronavirus, they’ll now be covered by AllClear policies bought via the BIBA Medical Travel Scheme.”

Mike Hallam, BIBA’s Head of Technical Services, added: “We continue to be proud of our non-standard medical travel scheme and the benefits that it gives customers and members. Brokers can be confident that they can provide comprehensive non-standard travel cover to their customers wishing to travel again.”

Here’s a reminder of the key benefits of the scheme relating to COVID-19:

  • Cancellation and curtailment cover for COVID-19
  • Up to £15 million emergency medical expenses cover for COVID-19
  • Up to 30 days FREE extended cover
