£29/yr Travel Insurance : AA (Silver) covers FCO Covid-19 advisories AND other cancellations

Posted 8th Mar 2020
Top-pick travel insurance that covers FCO Covid-19 advisories AND other cancellations. Some airlines are cancelling flights due to coronavirus, even in areas the FCO hasn't advised against travel to. Some hotels are doing the same. If that happens the airline/hotel should refund you, but what about the other costs (eg, if you cancel your hotel because your flight is cancelled).


To get that covered you need what's generally, but not always, known as travel disruption cover. Yet bizarrely in research so far, found those that cover hotels if a flight is cancelled, and those that cover flights if a hotel is cancelled, but just one that covers both.

Covers both from £29/yr. Choose the AA (Silver) cover policy and it will cover you if your flight or hotel is cancelled. This costs about £29 for a 35-yr-old individual's annual European policy, £141 for a family worldwide

So if you're planning to book, ask yourself:

How far away is the trip? The sooner it is, the more certainty you have. If you're planning to go soon to a country with only limited Covid-19 cases, there's less of a risk.
