Travel Insurance

Coronavirus update

University travel insurance will be available in accordance with University policy on travel and must be in line with current government advice.

Please see the Safety Office website for further information.

All travellers must ensure their travel documents (e.g. passports & visa) are up to date and correct for the countries they are visiting.
We do not cover the cost of trip cancellation or rearrangement due to the correct documentation not being arranged.

Please note the following in relation to University travel insurance cover:

  • With immediate effect, the Cancellation, Curtailment, Change of itinerary, Rearrangement and Replacement element of the policy will not operate in relation to Covid-19 losses. Therefore any cancellation costs, or additional travel/subsistence/accommodation expenses etc. incurred as a result of Coronavirus will not be covered.
  • There is no reduction in cover regarding emergency medical expenses – i.e. if a traveller contracts Covid-19 then subsequent medical treatment costs will be covered
  • Repatriation due to medical related incidents will continue to be covered under the medical expenses part of the policy
  • Cover will only be provided if University procedure is followed, including the completion of the Covid-19 risk assessment
