Lodging Expense Bundle

Exciting New Benefit for International Travelers from the U.S.

It’s a whole new world for travelers who are navigating reentry requirements into the U.S., so we’ve introduced an optional lodging expense coverage for travelers barred from boarding a commercial aircraft back to the U.S. as a result of receiving a positive COVID test.

This cover is in response to the new CDC requirement, which went into effect January 26, 2021, that international travelers get a COVID-19 test within three days prior to entering the U.S. and show a negative result before boarding their flight. Travelers testing positive would be required to remain in country until they demonstrate a negative test result, which could require accommodations beyond your original booking dates.

The new Lodging Expense Benefit may cover up to a total of $500 per person for certain additional lodging expenses, available to most new and existing policyholders who select AIG Travel’s Preferred or Deluxe travel insurance plans and indicate a destination outside the U.S.1

Residents of U.S. states and the District of Columbia traveling to Costa Rica have access to a customized version of the Lodging Expense Bundle to address the country's new entry requirement that U.S.-based visitors must secure and show proof of a travel insurance policy that includes up to a total of $2,000 in lodging expense coverage. This customized version, which would cover up to a total of $2,000 per person in additional lodging expenses, is likewise only available to those Costa Rica-bound travelers who select either the Preferred or Deluxe travel insurance plan.1

For more information on this new benefit please read your policy’s description of coverage or ask one of our specially trained World Service Representatives for more information.
