Specialist Travel Insurance product for high risk destinations, High Risk Voyager, now includes COVID cover
[Guildford – October 2020] High Risk Voyager Travel Insurance, created and administered by leading independent broker Voyager Insurance, has recently had its cover enhanced to take into account current global circumstances, by providing emergency medical, repatriation, funeral expenses and hospital benefit cover for COVID-19.
High Risk Voyager is a highly specialised travel insurance product designed to provide affordable travel cover for people travelling to high risk destinations worldwide including warzones, disaster zones and areas where the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) have advised against ‘all but essential travel’ or ‘all travel’.
Because of these attributes High Risk Voyager has received recognition from a number of news sources due to its ability to cover those travelling against this FCDO advice during the global COVID-19 pandemic, for example to Spain, Portugal or Italy.
Managing Director of Voyager Insurance, Carl Carter explained: “Most retail travel insurances will not cover anyone travelling to an area where the FCDO advises against travel – but people still need to travel to these regions for business, volunteering or even to visit friends and family. The FCDO travel warnings and advice used to primarily focus on warnings due to terrorism, kidnapping, crime etc – but now by far the travel warnings relate to COVID-19”.
Carter added : ‘As with all our products, Voyager Insurance wants to stay relevant to the environment we live and work in, the global pandemic being no different to this philosophy. To that end we have been working hard in partnership with the Insurers of High Risk Voyager to enhance the cover offered to include COVID-19 cover for Emergency Medical Expenses, so that if you are unfortunate enough to contract COVID-19 while abroad there is cover available, as well as medical repatriation cover to get you back home if necessary’.
These new benefits help High Risk Voyager Travel Insurance are vitally relevant in the current market, helping to meet the needs of those travellers looking to go abroad at the current time to those countries where the FCDO is advising against ‘All but Essential Travel’.
