Travel Insurance

ESA highly recommends you take out travel insurance with COVID-19 coverage. COVID-19 is now an insurable option with many policies, however not all.

ESA can not guide you towards a single product as insurance is tailored to your country of residence and individual circumstances. However, we can advise you to look for the following clauses:

  • HEALTHCARE
    • The right to claim back healthcare costs incurred in the case of a COVID-19 infection, such as hospital costs for those without EU citizenship or private testing to fly.
  • CANCELLATION
    • The right to cancel your trip and reclaim non-refundable expenses incurred if any of the following events would occur.
      1. You catch COVID-19 and are unable to travel
      2. A lockdown would be imposed in either the origin or destination country that would leave you unable to attend ESA
  • CURTAILMENT
    • The right to cancel your trip while it is in progress and reclaim expenses incurred in self-isolating plus rearranging travel plans if any of the following events would occur.
      1. Should you test positive for COVID-19
      2. Should you become aware of an upcoming lockdown that would leave you unable to re-enter your home country without unreasonable restriction

ESA Summer 2022 tickets are non-refundable so it is very important you and your friends all have sufficient cover.
