Change to FCO advice to Sri Lanka makes most travel insurance invalid…Except High Risk Voyager Travel Insurance!

April 29, 2019

Voyager Insurance Services offer High Risk Voyager Travel Insurance to cover people travelling to Sri Lanka and other areas where the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office advise against ‘all travel’ or ‘all but essential travel’.

Sri Lanka over the past few years has become a popular destination for travellers due to its amazing beaches and rich history, however due to the horrific terrorist attacks that have taken place recently, the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) have updated the travel information available on their website: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/sri-lanka.

The FCO are now advising against ‘all but essential travel’ to Sri Lanka, this has the significant effect that most mainstream travel insurance policies will now no longer cover anyone travelling to this region as it is a common exclusion in many standard travel insurance policies widely available to not provide cover to any country or region where the FCO advise against ‘all but essential travel’ or ‘all travel’.

However, Voyager Insurance Services’ unique High Risk Voyager Travel Insurance product can cover travellers going to Sri Lanka and other any other high risk areas, including those areas where the FCO has advised against ‘all but essential travel’ and ‘all travel’, be it for leisure, humanitarian aid or business reasons, for more details see www.HighRiskVoyager.com

Carl Carter, Managing Director of Voyager Insurance stated ‘It is a sad reality that terrorism is becoming an ever more common occurrence worldwide. As a forward-looking organisation, helping protect people on their travels, we have created High Risk Voyager Travel Insurance, to meet the demands of travellers going to these high-risk areas.’ Carter continued ‘Whether you are travelling for leisure, visiting family, volunteering or travelling for business to an area where the FCO has advised against ‘all travel’ or ‘all but essential travel’, you can protect both yourself and your wallet by applying for High Risk Voyager Travel Insurance which includes emergency evacuation, if necessary.’
