- We have set out below a summary of what is and is not covered when you buy a new easyJet travel insurance policy or book a new trip under an existing policy.
- Please rest assured that if you catch Coronavirus when abroad, it will be covered under your easyJet travel insurance policy, and that if you buy cover but cannot or do not want to travel at your intended departure date, we will refund 100% of your premium (if you have bought single trip cover and do not intend to make a claim).
- If you are booking a new trip, we suggest you are as flexible as possible with your travel plans, booking flights that are refundable and accommodation that can be cancelled up to your departure date (this will minimise your costs if you cannot travel), and that you advise your tour operator, travel agent/carrier and accommodation as soon as possible if you know you cannot travel.
