In order to continue offering its customers maximum flexibility, Transat has announced that travellers who book packages in October will get free COVID-19 medical insurance and Option Flex Standard’s extra flexibility to change or cancel a trip as part of its Book Packages With Confidence offer.
Travellers who book a package to the South or Europe by Oct. 31, 2020, for a departure by April 30, 2021, will get, at no extra cost:
Option Flex Standard, which allows them to:

- Change their travel dates, destination and/or hotel up to 72 hours before departure from Canada
- Transfer their vacation package to a friend or family member up to 30 days before departure from Canada
And they will also receive:

Transat also points out that its Book With Peace of Mind offer is still in effect. Applicable to all new flight bookings made by Dec. 31, 2020, it allows passengers to change their travel dates and/or destination at no charge up to 24 hours prior to departure, or cancel their flight and receive a travel credit that has no expiry date and is fully transferable.
In addition, customers who book an Air Transat roundtrip flight from Canada to an international destination will also benefit from COVID-19 insurance at no extra cost (subject to certain conditions).
