Santander Travel Insurance provides some cover for Coronavirus which is a 'communicable disease’. A communicable disease is an illness caused by bacteria or viruses that are spread directly or indirectly from one person to another. 

What’s covered if you need to cancel your holiday because of Coronavirus:

We'll cover cancellation costs (including any pre-booked excursions) if you or someone you're travelling with: 

  • contracts Coronavirus before your trip
  • is told to self-isolate by a doctor, the NHS or an educational or child-care setting following the advice of a public health authority, and the time needed to self-isolate goes past your original departure date (evidence may be required)
  • is not allowed to board due to health checks that result in a positive Coronavirus PCR test taken within 48 hours.

What Coronavirus cover do you have when you’re on holiday:

We will cover overseas medical and repatriation (the cost to get you home) expenses as long as the Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO) have not advised against travelling because of Coronavirus.
We’ll also cover any additional accommodation and travelling home costs you may have if you have to self-isolate on holiday, including if this goes past your original return date (for example, if there is an outbreak of Coronavirus in your hotel or resort).  

What’s not covered:

Santander Travel Insurance won't provide cover if you can claim back your costs (including cash equivalents such as vouchers) from anywhere else including any travel provider or compensation scheme.

It also won't cover the following:

  • You decide not to travel
  • Expenses you have because of any country’s government travel restrictions, including the UK
  • Travel restrictions made by a travel or accommodation provider
  • Financial failure of your travel or holiday provider
  • The FCDO advising against all travel or all but essential travel because of a Coronavirus outbreak

Always check before booking a trip

Before booking a trip or travelling, check the FCDO for travel advice. You can check the country you plan to visit to see the latest updates and whether it's safe to travel there. These updates may change regularly and at short notice during this current pandemic. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you check your cancellation rights with your travel provider before booking any overseas holiday.

For full details  of what's covered, including any excesses that may apply, exclusions and product terms and conditions, please read our travel insurance policy documents

Santander Travel Insurance will cover overseas medical and repatriation (the cost to get you home) expenses claims relating to coronavirus. However, if you're planning on travelling to or returning from anywhere that the FCDO has advised against, you won't be covered. This also applies if you're travelling through a country that's been advised against all or all but essential travel.

You won't be covered for any other claim relating to coronavirus (or any variation or mutation of it), such as cancellation. See our travel insurance documents for more information. 

For policies taken out before 12 August 2020

In some cases, we may be able to provide you with cancellation cover for Coronavirus-related claims. Please call Chubb customer services on 0800 519 9921. Lines are open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm.

Always check before booking a trip
