Wizz Air, Europe’s fastest growing and greenest airline*, today announces that it will offer passengers COVID-19 insurance coverage as part of its travel insurance package, which is available on wizzair.com through the airline’s partnership with insurance provider Chubb.
Wizz Air customers can purchase travel insurance which now covers COVID-19 related cancellations and medical related expenses when travelling abroad. For example, if you contract COVID-19 on your trip abroad and you incur extra costs to extend your stay, or medical expenses to treat you whilst sick, Wizz Air Travel Insurance will cover this (maximum limit applies). Or maybe you’ve had to cancel your trip because you contracted COVID-19 before you travel? Wizz Air Travel Insurance is there to protect you.
Wizz Air’s travel insurance also covers lost, stolen or damaged baggage as well as missed departure.
Terms, conditions and exclusions apply.
In addition to travel insurance, Wizz Air offers standalone cancellation cover in certain countries. Both cancellation cover and travel insurance can be purchased either during the flight booking process on Wizz Air’s website or app – and are applicable for both one way and return tickets. Full terms and conditions can be found here.
Andras Rado, Senior Corporate Communications Manager said: “At WIZZ, we are committed to optimizing the travel experience, whether it is the booking process, onboard service or offering added extras which make travel more convenient and seamless. With our updated travel insurance package, passengers can rest assured that they are prepared and covered in case of COVID-19 disruptions to their trip.”
