Covid 19 Cover now included in AANT Travel Insurance

As we are welcoming back the world, AANT is ready when you are.

From 17th November 2021, AANT Premium International cover and Domestic cover, has a range of COVID-19 benefits that will now automatically be included in newly bound insurance policies.

AANT CEO, Anthony Hill said “The COVID-19 outbreak has become the largest disruptor of the modern world, with the travel industry being hit the hardest. We know that many Australians are concerned about the financial implications if they contracted the coronavirus while travelling.”

“Now some of that concern can be alleviated, with AANT’s range of COVID-19 benefits that will be automatically included on newly bound domestic and overseas travel insurance policies.”

“Of course, it’s stating the obvious that what it won’t cover, is any travel whilst a ‘Do not travel ban’ is in place, regardless of a travel exemption,” said Mr Hill.
