Covid-19 (coronavirus) – important information.
On 17th May 2021, a traffic light system was introduced and trips to green list countries are legally permitted if you live in England. Strict border control measures will remain in place for your return to the UK.
Before you buy Travel Insurance, you should consider the implications of your destination moving from a green list country to amber or red as you may incur additional costs and/or face travel restrictions that will not be covered by your travel insurance.
The traffic light rules only dictate what you have to do on returning to England – so even if a country is on the green list, you still need to check your destination's entry requirements and the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCD) advice for travelling there. If the Foreign Office has advised against travel to your destination and you still decide to travel, you will not be covered by any travel insurance policy you purchase.
A few insurers do offer cover if you are an essential traveller. However, due to the uncertainty surrounding the definition of essential travel we have decided to temporarily suspend the sale of all travel insurance until more clarity is provided.
