All current and new MPI policies will now include cover under the Emergency Medical Expenses section, which includes hospital costs, ambulance costs, additional accommodation costs (if you are unable to travel home as originally booked) and repatriation if it’s medically necessary.

For policies issued after 13th March 2020 5.30pm - there is no cover under any other section (in particular, the FCO warning* under cancellation or curtailment) for claims caused by the Coronavirus. This includes any preventative containment or delay measures.

For any policies issued and trips booked before 13th March 2020 5.30pm cover remains as per the policy terms and conditions.

*Our policies will not provide any cover for COVID-19 if the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) are advising against all but essential travel to your destination due to the virus. In the present circumstances as the FCO advice on foreign travel is susceptible to rapid and significant change, we strongly recommend that you visit the FCO website to check the up to date advice against your actual or potential travel plans before purchasing travel insurance.
