TAP Offers Customers COVID-19 Insurance Cover
TAP Air Portugal has become the latest airline to offer customers free insurance that helps them to face the costs and risks associated with the COVID-19 virus.
If a customer is diagnosed with COVID-19 while travelling, the Insurance grants €500 in cases where this results in hospitalization, as well as the reimbursement up to the same amount.
The insurance also includes reimbursement of expenses for accommodation, food & drink, and others related to COVID-19 if quarantine has been imposed by a doctor and for this reason, the trip has to be extended.
In addition to the hospitalization costs, the insurance also provides a lump sum benefit of €1,000 if the customer is admitted due to COVID-19 to the intensive care unit while travelling.
This insurance is provided to customers automatically when they book on flytap.com, in national territory, round-trip tickets at all rates, except for Discount and Basic rates.
The cover is valid for bookings for up to nine passengers, with a maximum of 30 days and starting up to 90 days from the purchase of the flights, and among other conditions.
