All-inclusive tour operator Club Med has introduced medical assistance cover in its package holidays.

All holidays with flights departing until April 30, 2021, are automatically covered by this new Covid-19 insurance.

If clients fall ill with Covid-19 while travelling with Club Med, all medical expenses will be covered.

In cases where the client is hospitalised, the cover also pays for a companion to stay and medical care transfers if required.

If a lockdown or quarantine is required, housing will be provided and if clients cannot fly home, new flights will be provided once it is safe to travel.

However, the medical cover does not cover consequences of situations such as a border lockdown, curtailment and quarantine without sickness involved.
