FWD Travel insurance covers you for overseas medical expenses, theft of or damage to your personal belongings, baggage or travel delay and more, while the COVID-19 Enhanced Travel Benefits is an add-on and can be purchased along with FWD Travel insurance (Single/Annual Trip, up to 90 days) to provide comprehensive COVID-19 coverage before and/or during your trip.
FWD Travel insurance, our main travel insurance product, does not cover claims related to COVID-19. If you require cover for COVID-19, please purchase the COVID-19 Enhanced Travel Benefits add-on.

As COVID-19 is considered a known event, FWD Travel insurance covers other travel-related claims excluding any event related to the COVID-19 situation. Since one’s health or trip may be affected by the COVID-19 situation regardless of the destination, our COVID-19 Enhanced Travel Benefits add-on complements the cover by offering the above-mentioned benefits - subject to the terms and conditions of the policy.
More information on the COVID-19 Enhanced Travel Benefits can be found in our policy wording.
