Coronavirus outbreak

All new and existing Sainsbury’s Bank Travel Insurance policies cover you for emergency medical treatment and/or medical repatriation if you contract COVID-19 during your overseas trip. This cover is only provided if you are travelling to a destination where there’s no restriction from the FCO.

Policies sold after 13 March 2020 do not provide cover for any other claims related to COVID-19, including cancellation.

If you have any questions, we recommend that you check our FAQs section before calling us.
