    Canadian Airline Offering Free COVID-19 Insurance For Travellers

    Another airline will be covering the costs if you catch COVID-19 while travelling. 

    WestJet, Canada’s second largest airline, is now offering complimentary COVID-19 insurance for eligible passengers for travel to and from the US, Europe, the UK, Mexico and the Caribbean until August 31, 2021. 

    The airline joins Air Canada in offering free Covid-19 insurance in an effort to boost sales as more Canadians elect to stay home or travel domestically to avoid Canada’s 14-day quarantine for international travelers.

    WestJet’s free insurance plan initially didn't cover trips to the States, but now it does.

    The airline announced on September 25 that those travelling to, through or from the United States can now get their hands on the airline's enhanced $200,000 coverage for flight and vacation reservations.

    The coverage typically lasts up to 21 days for travel before or on August 31, 2021.

    For one-way travel reservations, coverage is available for up to seven days. 

    Air Canada is also offering complimentary emergency medical and quarantine insurance for travellers taking round-trip international flights.
