Coronavirus outbreak – travel to China

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) are currently advising against all travel to Hubei province and all but essential travel to the rest of mainland China (not including Hong Kong and Macao).

Our travel insurance policies do not cover travel undertaken to an area where the FCO advise against all or all but essential travel.

If you have already planned a trip to China, your policy may provide cover for cancelling your trip. Call our claims helpline on 01403 288 421.

Please visit the FCO website for the latest travel advice.
