COVID-19 has caused many insurance providers to restrict cover against COVID-19. We know it's so important to have adequate cover with travel insurance, so we have teamed up with Rock Insurance.
What they cover:-
Since the 14th April 2020 ROCK has supplied products that cover COVID-19 for emergency medical treatment. In the first week of July 2020 ROCK was the first to add cancellation cover for Coronavirus disease (COVID-19); severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-COV-2), any mutation of these or any epidemic or pandemic virus or epidemic or pandemic disease.

There have been some changes to entry requirements for all arrivals into the United Kingdom due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Before you arrive into the country, you’ll need to:
- Complete a Public Health Passenger Locator Form, which you can find here – this will only be available to you 48 hours before you’re due to arrive into the UK.
- Each passenger needs to complete a form, except for children under 18 years old whose details can be added to the form of an adult they’re travelling with. Those travelling from the Channel Islands to the mainland UK don’t need to complete the form.
- Once you’ve completed the form, please keep either a printed or an electronic copy handy, as you’ll need to show this at border control
