Air Canada Vacations (ACV) is extending its COVID-19 Coverage and Assistance Plan, administered by Allianz Global Assistance, to all international destinations when booking any flight and hotel-inclusive package, the tour operator said on Tuesday (May 23).
(Previously, the plan was offered to sun destinations only).
Offered at no additional cost, this coverage is designed to cover emergency medical and quarantine costs related to COVID-19 while travelling, with the goal of providing travellers with greater confidence and peace of mind when booking their next dream vacation.
"As Canadians start to make their vacation plans for the future, safety while abroad is top of mind. We want to do our part by ensuring that travellers are covered in case of emergency medical and quarantine expenses related to COVID-19. Coupled with our commitment to safer travel and Air Canada CleanCare+, travellers will have the confidence they need to book their next getaway now and enjoy a tomorrow filled with vacations,” said Nino Montagnese, vice-president of Air Canada Vacations.
All eligible customers who book one of ACV's flight and hotel-inclusive packages to an international destination on or after March 23, 2021 (excluding cruise and Canada packages) for travel from May 1, 2021 to Oct. 31, 2021, will be covered under the COVID-19 Coverage and Assistance Plan.
Administered by Allianz Global Assistance, the COVID-19 Coverage and Assistance Plan is underwritten by CUMIS General Insurance Company, a member of the Co-operators group of companies.
