With it being unsafe for Brits to travel at the moment, we understand that things may feel unsettling and you may be looking to claim on your travel insurance policy.

Can I claim for the cancellation of my holiday because of COVID-19?

While you can’t claim for the cancellation of your holiday on your Avanti Travel Insurance policy because of COVID-19, we can still help straighten some things out to help change your plans.

If you have a valid Avanti Travel Insurance policy, and your holiday has been cancelled because of COVID-19, we can offer to:

  • Change the travel dates of your single trip travel insurance within 18 months of your original policy start date (the date you bought the policy) at no additional cost as long as there’s no increase in duration – although we will allow one extra day without charging an additional fee.
  • Change the destination of your trip to another country as long as there’s no increase in cost. If the area you want to travel to is more expensive, then you can pay the difference.

For more information, take a look at our coronavirus update to see how we can help make things that bit easier.
