Your enhanced COVID-19 coverage
On 30 January 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a global health emergency for COVID-19 and on March 11, WHO declared COVID-19 a pandemic. Therefore, some losses caused by or due to COVID-19 are not considered unexpected, unknown or unforeseeable and may not be covered under the terms and conditions of this insurance policy. If you previously 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.
If you are purchasing a new policy, we have amended the AIG travel insurance policy to cover certain situations pertaining to COVID-19. Full terms, conditions and exclusions can be found here.
Key benefits for COVID-19 coverage are:
- Up to CHF 215.000 for Overseas Medical Expenses & Emergency Evacuation
