Covid 19 and Pandemic Insurance
Until the outbreak of COVID we worked with Campbell Irvine in the UK. However since the summer of 2020, new travel insurance policies are now coming available that do cover some COVID related claims and so we would like to point you towards a selection of these
Battleface Insurance https://www.battleface.com. Will cover travellers if travelling against FCDO advice and will cover various COVID medical risks for travellers aged up to 59.
MPI Insurance https://mpibrokers.com/travel-insurance/travel-insurance Click on Get a Quote (for the new COVID Cover insurance). Will cover travellers for various COVID risks. However will not provide any cover for COVID-19 if the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) are advising against all but essential travel to your destination due to the virus
Global Travel Insurance https://www.globaltravelinsurance.co.uk/ will cover various COVID risks
Travellers travelling with Dragoman must have proof of an insurance policy covering Covid, including medical, repatriation, quarantine.
It is a condition of booking that all passengers must have comprehensive travel insurance. Without evidence of valid travel insurance passengers will not be allowed to start the trip.
Whatever policy passengers choose, it should be designed for adventure/overland travel. As such it must cover passengers for adventure activities such as white water rafting, trekking, horse-riding and that the 24 Hour Emergency Assistance Company must be experienced in handling situations in developing countries – for example they have the ability to arrange repatriation from remote areas such as the Sahara or if you were trekking in the Andes. Please double check if passengers have annual travel and/or credit card policies to ensure they have the cover required, as many of these policies are not able to cope with adventure travel to remote areas. We recommend that any policy has the following minimum levels of cover: Medical (incl. repatriation) £5,000,000 Personal Liability £2,000,000 Cancellation and Curtailment £5,000 Loss of Baggage, personal effects, money and other inclusions are down to personal choice.
