INFORMATION (EXTRACT) FROM THE EUROPEAN TRAVEL INSURANCE
FOR CANCELLATION COVERAGE ALSO IN THE EVENT OF COVID-19 DISEASE DESPITE PANDEMY STATUS:
Due to the improved situation, we will not, as of now, classify COVID-19 as a pandemic and therefore as a reason for exclusion in cancellation and travel interruption insurance, as long as the situation remains stable and there is no renewed increase in cases (second wave of infection) and, as a result, no tightening of measures, in particular travel restrictions. Thus, as long as the situation remains stable, full cancellation insurance and travel interruption cover will apply again. Cancellation cases in connection with COVID-19 are also covered, although COVID-19 is still classified as an epidemic or pandemic (WHO, Austrian health authorities, therefore pandemic exclusion according to the ERV Terms and Conditions for Travel Insurance will not be applied as long as the situation remains stable). This is also valid for travel interruption costs.
Here are some examples to better explain the cancellation cover.
Cover exists in the event that you, as insured customer, are unable to commence the trip.
- because you have an elevated temperature, even if a later test result is negative or you have tested positive for COVID-19 without showing any symptoms.
- because you develop symptoms of COVID-19.
- because a close relative or a person living in the same household suffers from COVID-19 and your presence is urgently required.
- because a close relative in the same household has contracted COVID-19 and you have to go into quarantine.
