The insurance coverage of our travel cancellation insurance (according to the General Conditions for Travel Cancellation Insurance, ABRV) provides for a benefit in the event of unexpected severe illness. If the unexpectedly severe illness is caused by a pandemic, insurance coverage exists in principle. Interventions by high authorities and thus also the consequences of quarantine orders are excluded, however, and can only be covered with this supplementary insurance.
By taking out our travel cancellation insurance, you can now insure yourself with an additional premium against the consequences of a coronavirus infection in connection with your booked trip and the applicable COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) quarantine measures.
Insurance coverage exists only under the condition that the quarantine was ordered by official medical instruction, for example by the responsible health office or another authorized authority. Insurance cover also exists if you or a crew member are suspected of being infected or are infected with the coronavirus and for this reason are refused carriage by authorized third parties (e.g. airport staff) on the day of the return journey (end of journey).
Please note: This additional insurance takes effect from 14 calendar days after conclusion of the insurance.
You can conclude this with our travel cancellation insurance or the travel cancellation incl. insolvency protection.
