The Post Office has added coronavirus cover to its travel insurance products, which went back on sale on Wednesday (17 June).
Cover for contracting coronavirus overseas is now included as standard on single-trip, annual multi-trip and backpacker products.
This protects travellers in the event of running up emergency medical and repatriation costs should they fall ill during a trip.
However, the cover will only apply to travel where there are no Foreign Office travel restrictions in place.
Paul Paddock, Post Office head of travel insurance, said: “We look forward to welcoming back our customers and protecting them and their upcoming travel plans, when it’s safe to travel.
"It’s likely coronavirus will be with us for some time. By including medical cover now, we are able to support our customers for the foreseeable future.”
