We are giving customers extra peace of mind by enhancing our 5* Covid-19 travel insurance product to provide cover for travel to destinations where the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) advises ‘against all but essential travel’ as a result of Covid-19.

With cancellation and medical cover against Covid-19 already included in our 5* Defaqto rated product, this upgrade means that customers can now get FCDO cover too. This is a first for any UK airline and tour operator and gives customers all the assurance they need to book with confidence and insure their place in the sun, knowing they are protected against the unexpected.

The new FCDO cover means customers are protected both before travel or if they are in destination, and the FCDO advises ‘against all but essential travel’ as a result of Covid-19. Whether the travel advice is already in place or changes, the cover still applies and includes up to £10m medical, £5,000 cancellation and £2,000 baggage cover.

Further building on the trust and confidence that we have established both before and during the pandemic, the extra FCDO cover will be automatically included in all new Single Trip Travel Insurance (Europe) policies purchased on or after 17th September 2020 and added free of charge to existing Single Trip Travel Insurance (Europe) policies purchased between 9th April and 16th September 2020. Customers will need to buy a new policy if their existing policy does not include the new FCDO cover and they want to benefit from it.

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: “Despite changing travel advice, there is strong customer demand to get away and enjoy some much-needed sunshine. That said, we know customers want extra reassurance during these times, which is why we are upgrading our 5* travel insurance product to provide cover for travel to destinations where the FCDO advises against all but essential travel for reasons related to Covid-19. This is the latest example of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays putting our customers first, and this will remain at the absolute core of our strategy.

“Thanks to this enhanced insurance product, customers can get both Covid-19 and FCDO cover in one place, giving them added reassurance and more flexibility when it comes to booking and travelling. In just a few simple clicks, customers can purchase this great product and insure their place in the sun!”
