If you or your travel partner contract Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) before or during your travel, and you meet the policy requirements for canceling or interrupting your trip due to sickness, our travel insurance plans will provide coverage. In fact, our policies do not include exclusions for epidemics or pandemics. If you would like to cancel your trip due to a fear of contracting this virus, please consider purchasing our Classic Plus plan with Cancel For Any Reason coverage.
