Riu Hotels and Resorts is building coronavirus cover into all new bookings, which will include medical assistance of up to €30,000 per guest.
Riu Protect will ensure guests get any medical help they need if their stay is affected by Covid-19, and will also cover any necessary extensions to stays.
The cover will be supported by AXA XL with guidance from Mercer Marsh Benefits, and will be automatically added to all bookings made from 15 June.
It will cover medical attention, surgery, hospitalisation, and emergency medical transport, as well as extensions to hotel stays of up to 14 nights for medical reasons.
Riu’s cover will also extend to medical repatriation of affected guests, and return tickets for other guests in their party.
