Dubai-based no-frills carrier flydubai has announced that it will provide passengers with a new multi-risk travel insurance which will be automatically applied to all passengers purchasing a flydubai ticket from 01 December 2020.
Passengers who purchase a flydubai ticket, through the flydubai website or mobile app, flydubai travel shops, the flydubai Contact Centre or through any flydubai travel partner, will automatically receive the new, multi-risk travel insurance, provided by AIG Travel, at no additional cost.
In addition to multi-risk coverage, the insurance also provides COVID-19 coverage. The policy covers both return and one-way trips outside of a passenger’s country of residence.
Commenting on the announcement, Hamad Obaidalla, Chief Commercial Officer at flydubai, said: “the safety and wellbeing of our passengers and crew remains our highest priority. Our multi-risk travel insurance will offer passengers more confidence to travel knowing that they will be looked after at every step of their journey. We expect the demand for travel to increase during the upcoming winter holidays season and this will give our passengers greater piece of mind.”
Key benefits of the policy include:
- Coverage for overseas medical expenses and emergency evacuations for up to USD 500,000 valid for COVID-19 and other medical emergencies while traveling abroad.
- Up to USD 7,500 for trip cancellations or curtailments for non-refundable costs, including if the traveller or a relative (as defined in the policy) is unable to travel because they are diagnosed with COVID-19 before the scheduled trip departure date, or for other named reasons.
- Up to USD $150 per day per person for quarantine at destination, capped at 14 consecutive days, if the traveller tests positive for COVID-19 or is unexpectedly placed into a mandatory quarantine by a governmental body.
