Overseas travel

Many countries and territories have introduced screening measures (temperature checks and health/travel questions) and entry restrictions at border crossings and transport hubs.

Check the travel advice pages for all countries you are planning to visit or transit through. For further information about entry requirements, contact the local immigration authorities or the embassy, high commission or consulate of the country you’re travelling to.

Air travel

As governments and local authorities bring in measures to help slow the spread of the virus, some airlines are changing their schedules or suspending flights for some destinations. If you’re due to travel to an area affected by coronavirus, keep up-to-date with the latest information from your travel company or airline.


If you are planning to go on a cruise, be aware a COVID-19 outbreak on board is possible, and your travel may be disrupted. People over 70 and with underlying health conditions are now advised not to travel on cruises.

Latest travel advice and guidance

If you’re concerned about the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on your existing travel plans, check with your airline, tour operator, cruise line or other transport and accommodation providers as applicable. Individual providers may also have their own requirements for customers or passengers to meet.

If you have any further questions about your cover or would like further reassurance, you should contact your travel insurance provider.
