Important note - Our Travel Insurance policies will only provide cover for countries to which the FCDO no longer advises against all but essential travel. Please click here for up to date advice - https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice
You can still purchase a policy for a country where the government is advising against non essential travel if travelling in the future and be covered for cancellation of non COVID related travel. Should the FCDO update the countries status and move to non essential travel permitted your policy will be valid for travel however if the FCDO still advises against all but essential to that country the policy will be invalid should the you still choose to travel.
