Rock launches new COVID-19 travel products for trade and consumer customers

Intermediary Rock Insurance Group has launched travel insurance and cancellation products for the travel trade.

The first product covers agents against cancellation costs if a customer books a holiday and needs to cancel due to testing positive to COVID-19.

The second product is travel insurance that can be sold to customers. It includes pre-departure cancellation if travellers test positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of their holiday and cannot travel.

It also covers emergency medical care and repatriation whilst travelling should they contract the virus whilst abroad.

Antony Martin, managing director at Rock Insurance Group, said: “There has been a great deal of confusion around travel insurance recently and the travel industry has incurred significant costs because of it. We noticed a gap in the market for a solid COVID-protection policy, so we wanted to create robust products which clearly outline what is and isn’t included.

He added: “As the world is starting to open up for travel again, we feel it is really important to re-instate traveller confidence by offering pre-departure cover for the elements that are not covered under Package Travel Regulations as well as cover during their trips.”
