Post Office Travel Insurance is back on sale as of 17 June 2020. If you’ve booked or are planning a future trip, you can now get cover in place ready for when the Government or Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) says it’s safe to go.
Our policies are only able to provide cover for coronavirus-related disease (including but not limited to COVID-19), provided the FCO have not advised against all or all but essential travel to your intended destination at the start of your trip.
So, if you fall ill while you’re away – including with coronavirus – we’ll cover the cost of emergency medical treatment and transport home if you need it.
Like other insurers, we don’t provide cover for coronavirus related claims under any other section of the policy, including if you have to cancel a trip, or it is disrupted or cut short, because of a coronavirus related matter. We’ve answered the most common questions about what’s covered and what isn’t below.
Government guidance on travel within the UK and FCO advice on international travel may change at short notice. So it's important to check the latest advice regularly: FCO advice or latest government advice.
Your cover won’t be valid if you travel against this advice, or to somewhere the FCO have advised against all or all but essential travel to at the start of your trip.
