Holiday Extras has expanded its Covid-19 travel insurance range to cover countries where the FCO is advising against non-essential travel.
The deal with battleface insurance will allow clients heading to countries such as France, Spain or the US to buy cover that includes medical treatment if they fall ill with the virus abroad.
The only countries not covered are Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Crimea, South Sudan and Venezuela.
Howard Dove, Holiday Extras’ insurance director, said: “Just two weeks after we launched our Covid-19 travel insurance for trips to countries on the FCO exemption list, we’re pleased to announce we can now offer cover for trips to every destination via our partnership with battleface.
“Being able to offer good, comprehensive travel insurance to all of our customers is a key part of our long-term strategic plan and core to our industry’s much-needed recovery.
“Initially we’ll simply link out to battleface’s website, but we’re working to integrate the product with our call centre, offer it through our agent partners and ultimately offer this option to customers via a smart drop-down menu if they select a destination that’s not on the FCO exemption list.”
