You may be covered if you, a Traveling Companion* or a Family Member* contract COVID-19. If you contract COVID-19 after purchasing Travel Protection and are diagnosed prior to departure, the trip cancellation benefit may provide coverage if you need to cancel your trip. You will need to provide proof of sickness from your doctor and a statement that you are medically unable to travel.
If you contract COVID-19 once you’ve already started your trip, the trip interruption benefit may provide coverage if you need to interrupt your trip because you or a Traveling Companion* become sick. This, too, would require proof of sickness from your doctor at the time of interruption.
If you become sick with COVID-19 while traveling, your medical expenses may be reimbursed as well up to the benefit limits indicated in your plan.
