FOR POLICIES PURCHASED ON OR AFTER MARCH 11
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared Coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic. Therefore, any losses for trip cancellation, trip interruption and/or trip delay caused by or resulting from quarantine due to COVID-19 is not considered “Unforeseen” and will not be covered under the terms and conditions of this insurance policy.
However, this does not affect any Medical Benefits available under the insurance policy. If you contract COVID-19 prior to departure, you would be covered for Trip Cancellation, if you have a confirmed and documented diagnosis and/or you are medically unable to travel at the time of departure due to COVID-19. If you contract COVID-19 while on a covered trip, you would be covered for Medical Expense and Trip Interruption/Curtailment benefits if you have a confirmed and documented diagnosis.
Please thoroughly read the Description of Coverage for your insurance policy and note that Travel Guard offers a free-look period, which means you can cancel this insurance policy by giving us written notice within 15 days from the Effective Date of your insurance policy to receive a refund of the premium paid (provided that you have not started your trip or filed a claim). For New York residents, please call 1-800-826-1300 for more information about refunds.
If you have already purchased an insurance policy, the facts and circumstances surrounding your trip and the terms and conditions of your policy will determine the extent of coverage for COVID-19 related claims.
