COVID-19 insurance services for Passengers by Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian Airlines


Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian Airlines have now come up with Covid-19 insurance services for their passengers. They are giving them another option for better planning security during travel. This option is an added benefit apart from flexible rebooking options and the abolition of the rebooking fee. The customer or passenger could choose between – ‘Travel Care’ and ‘Travel Care Plus’, and these are incorporated in the already existing insurance packages being offered by the airlines’ insurance partner. While Travel Care provides a compensation payment for the person if s/he has to go for quarantine at the destination due to Covid-19 infection, Travel Care Plus too covers medical costs in the case of the infection. Emergency medical repatriation would also be looked after. The benefits are subject to the terms and conditions of the insurance policy. Also, in the case of Travel Care, the option gives travel cancellation and trip interruption insurance options. Travel Care Plus carries all these with it. The insurance options could be booked with the insurance partner of Lufthansa Group AIG Europe S.A.
