Travel against FCDO travel advice

With travel insurance against FCDO advice, if you feel safe to go on your trip, you’ll be pleased to know we have cover for just that. So, even if the FCDO advises against ‘all but essential’ travel to your most-loved destination, you can still travel should you need to.

So you can travel with confidence knowing that if something does go wrong, we’ll always aim to put it right.

Please keep in mind that government travel bans are different from FCDO advice, so we can’t cover if you travel against government restrictions.

To make it easier for you to get travelling again, you can get 10% off Covid-19 tests when you buy a new travel insurance policy with us.

Before you travel

Make sure you’re up to date with the latest travel guidance. Always check:

  • FCDO travel advice to make sure it’s safe travel
  • Entry requirements and government advice for your destination

Flexibility to change details online

When you buy a policy from us, you can manage it yourself by logging in to your My Avanti account. Here you can:

  • access policy documents
  • update traveller details
  • change your single trip dates (limits apply)
  • renew an annual policy if you have no changes to make
  • and more.

If you have questions about Covid-19 and how it affects your holiday plans, visit our Covid-19 help page.

Can I travel against FCDO travel advice?

If you need to travel and feel it’s safe enough to go, adding our European FCDO Travel Advice Extension to your policy can give you a level of cover if you choose to travel while the FCDO advise against all but essential travel.

By adding the European FCDO Travel Advice Extension to your policy, your holiday plans to places like Spain or France don’t have to be put on hold.

Cover starts from as little as £5 per person but may vary depending on your policy needs.

Do I need to have had both my Covid jabs to be covered?

As long as you’ve had the vaccines you’ve been offered for Covid-19, you should be covered. If you haven’t been offered both doses yet or you’re medically exempt then you can also be covered.

If you’ve refused any doses of the vaccine or haven’t been able to have a dose you’ve been offered, you won’t be covered.

Am I covered for COVID-19 with the European FCDO Travel Advice Extension?

The level of Covid cover depends on when you took out a policy with us. If you are an existing customer, please take a look at your policy document for full details of cover.

New policies from 29 April 2021:

Adding our European Travel Advice Extension to your policy can give you cover for Covid, even when travelling against FCDO advice.

Take out a new policy with us and you’ll be covered if you fall ill with Covid when on holiday, just as long as you’ve had the recommended Covid vaccinations. 

Policies bought before 29 April 2021:

If you took out a policy with our European Travel Advice Extension add-on before 29 April 2021, you will still be covered up to your policy limits, just as long as your claim isn’t related to Covid when abroad, or any other reason that caused the FCDO to change their travel advice.

What countries are covered with the European FCDO Travel Advice Extension?

With the extra European FCDO Travel Advice Extension, your policy can cover you for trips in Europe as well as Morocco, Turkey, Egypt and Tunisia.
