Bupa Global - Covid-19 Information:

To evidence compliance, in case of a claim, the client can submit copies of the travel guidelines stated by the public health authorities of his/her country of permanent residence as well as those of his/her destination country/countries (e.g. screenshots from relevant official websites). The documentation must specifically indicate the travel guidelines valid on the date of his/her departure.

Covid 19 Update

Outbreak of a new coronavirus strain

With the outbreak of a new coronavirus strain from Wuhan, China and indications of human to human transmission, Wuhan’s local government had shut public transport on midnight 22 January 2020 to halt the outbreak of the virus.

This notice means that, with respect to all travel insurance policies purchased after 10:00 am on 23 January 2020, Chubb will treat any claims related to the new coronavirus in Wuhan as ‘known risk’, which an insured person should mitigate against by not travelling to Wuhan, as the claim will not be covered.

For more information on the coronavirus, please check the World Health Organisation website.

Chubb TravelWell Protection Plan (Annual/Single Trip) covers medical expenses for Covid-19 except in the region of China. This includes being diagnosed with Covid-19 during the journey, or if the destination country is listed on the Outbround Travel Alert by the Hong Kong Government.

The policy does not cover travel inconvenience losses as this is taken as "known risk".

Policy Response

Chubb will assess all claims in accordance with the facts of each case, the Policy Wordings and the applicable Certificate of Insurance. Your cover will depend on the type of plan you purchased and your particular circumstances.

If you are an insured person and you require emergency assistance, please contact Chubb Assistance on +852 3723 3030.

Chubb leisure travel claims procedures are available and can be lodged at https://www.chubbclaims.com/ace/hk-en/welcome.aspx
