British travellers hoping to travel to one of the dozens of countries soon to be excluded from the UK’s 14-day quarantine rules may face one more hurdle before they head off on holiday: a frustrating search for insurance.
“The situation with travel insurance is complex,” says MoneySavingExpert, with many insurers refusing to offer any cover and others specifically excluding claims related to the coronavirus pandemic.
For some, that will defeat the whole purpose of insurance. “Three-quarters of Brits say they will not take out a policy if Covid-19 cancellations are not covered,” says The Telegraph.
Can you travel without insurance?
The Foreign Office strongly advises against it.
