COVID-19: Lufthansa Offers More Insurance Options
Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian Airlines are now offering passengers a further option in their travel plans, in addition to flexible rebooking options and the abolition of the rebooking fee.
COVID-19 services are now included in the existing insurance packages offered by the airlines' insurance partner. Customers can choose between "Travel Care" and "Travel Care Plus".
The Travel Care option includes a compensation payment for the passenger in case they have to go into quarantine at their destination due to a COVID-19 infection. The option includes travel cancellation and trip interruption insurance.
In addition to all the benefits of the Travel Care option, the Travel Care Plus option also covers medical costs in the event of a COVID-19 infection of the passenger.
Any emergency medical repatriation is also covered, and all benefits are subject to the terms and conditions of the insurance policy.
The insurance options can be booked with Lufthansa Group's insurance partner AIG Europe S.A. with immediate effect for passengers residing in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland via the direct sales channels.
Lufthansa Group Airlines is thus one of the first airlines to offer its customers travel insurance with COVID-19 coverage as a supplement travel product.
