Travel Insurance

Coronavirus update

University travel insurance will be available in accordance with revised University policy on travel.

A framework to enable the safe and controlled resumption of University business conducted away from University premises has been agreed which includes a mandatory Covid-19 Risk Assessment. Please see the Safety Office website for further information.


Please note the following in relation to University travel insurance cover

  • With immediate effect, the Cancellation, Curtailment, Change of itinerary, Rearrangement and Replacement element of the policy will not operate in relation to Covid-19 losses. Therefore any cancellation costs, or additional travel/subsistence/accommodation expenses etc. incurred as a result of Coronavirus will not be covered.
  • There is no reduction in cover regarding emergency medical expenses – i.e. if a traveller contracts Covid-19 then subsequent medical costs will be covered.
  • Repatriation due to medical related incidents will continue to be covered under the medical expenses part of the policy.
  • Cover will only be provided if University procedure is followed, including the completion of the Covid-19 risk assessment
