ACV Launches COVID-19 Coverage, Assistance Plan

Air Canada Vacations is now offering a COVID-19 Coverage and Assistance Plan, administered by Allianz Global Assistance.

The new plan will be offered at no additional cost to customers booking with Air Canada Vacations and it’s designed to cover emergency medical and quarantine expenses if COVID-19 is contracted while travelling.

Aimed at providing travellers with greater confidence to book their next dream vacation, this plan will be included in all flight and hotel Air Canada Vacations packages to select destinations in Mexico and in the Caribbean at no extra cost, as Air Canada Vacations will cover the cost of the coverage.

Montagnese continues: “Our strategy, in conjunction with Air Canada CleanCare+, has been to be at the forefront of travel safety measures, including through the implementation of our Health and Safety Standards in our Sun destinations. We look forward to continuing to work with Allianz Global Assistance to turn our customers’ travel dreams into reality.”

Chris Van Kooten, chief executive officer at Allianz Global Assistance, said that: “As Canadians look forward to travelling again, safety while abroad is top of mind for travellers more than ever before. Air Canada Vacations’ customers can once again travel with confidence and enjoy their holiday to the fullest with peace of mind about COVID-19 related medical emergencies.”
