Enhanced Covid-19 Travel Insurance for Israel

Travellers are now prioritising safety more than ever. In fact, 89%2 of those we surveyed checked the FCDO website before booking or planning a trip.  

It is best practice to check the FCDO website, and we encourage all travellers to do so. However, it’s also essential to have a policy that includes enhanced Covid cover. 

Chris Rolland, AllClear CEO, states that: “Along with being fully up-to-date with the latest travel advice and receiving your full dose of the Covid-19 vaccination, enhanced Covid cover can help keep you safe while having a holiday. “

This type of Covid cover will protect you if you contract Covid and need emergency medical care while away. It’ll also help cover the costs if you need to cancel your trip to self-isolate. 

To ensure your trip begins without complication; we recommend the following:  

  • Check the FCDO website in advance to make sure you can fulfil Israel’s entry requirements. 
  • Check the ‘Traffic Light System’ for quarantine requirements on return to the UK from Israel. 
  • Buy quality travel insurance for Israel that includes enhanced COVID-19 cover.
