New school trip travel insurance with COVID-19 cover
Travel insurance has always been an essential element of any school trip and in light of current uncertainty, having reliable cover for your group is more important than ever.
Last term we introduced extra flexible booking terms for new school trips and now we have upgraded our travel insurance to include COVID-19 cover to give school groups all the protection they require to book their next trip with confidence.
Nigel English CEO of Voyager School Travel says: ““As the world opens up for educational visits, we’ve been working hard to find school trip insurance from a reputable company that includes COVID-19 cover. I’m very pleased to announce we are now working with ABTA and Axa to give our schools what we believe is the very best, most comprehensive travel insurance policy available for UK schools. Their Travel Sure policy, created exclusively for UK schools travelling with a School Travel Forum member, offers COVID-19 protection both ahead of the trip and while groups are away so that schools can book their next trip knowing that their teachers and pupils will be fully covered.”
What COVID-19 protection is included for school groups?
COVID-19 pre-departure travel insurance cover:
- Cancellation cover for any individuals who can’t travel because they’ve contracted COVID-19 in the run up to the trip
- Cover for individuals who are unable to go on the trip because they’ve been told to self-isolate by NHS Test & Trace
COVID-19 protection while on the school trip:
- Cover for any additional travel and accommodation expenses incurred as a result of an individual testing positive for COVID while abroad
- Emergency medical expenses cover if someone falls ill with COVID-19 while on the trip
- Additional accommodation and travel expenses incurred because an individual is required to self-isolate at resort
- The accommodation and travel costs incurred by a parent or guardian to travel to the resort and accompany their affected child
