High Risk Voyager now includes COVID cover

Specialist travel insurance product for high risk destinations, High Risk Voyager Travel Insurance, has enhanced its product by providing emergency medical, repatriation, funeral expenses and hospital benefit cover for COVID-19.

High Risk Voyager is a highly specialised travel insurance product designed to provide cover for people travelling to high risk destinations worldwide including warzones, disaster zones and areas where the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office have advised against all but essential travel, or all travel.

Managing director of Voyager Insurance, Carl Carter explained: "Most retail travel insurances will not cover anyone travelling to an area where the FCDO advises against travel -- but people still need to travel to these regions for business, volunteering or even to visit friends and family. The FCDO travel warnings and advice used to primarily focus on warnings due to terrorism, kidnapping, crime, etc, but now by far the travel warnings relate to COVID-19."
