Epidemic and pandemic travel coverage—now included with N26 You and Metal

3 min read

Traveling for necessary reasons during the COVID-19 pandemic, and looking for an extra safety net in case things don’t go according to plan? We’ve got you covered. 

If you’re a premium N26 You, N26 Business You, N26 Metal or N26 Business Metal customer, you’ll be pleased to know that we’ve expanded your Allianz Assistance travel coverage to include epidemic and pandemic coverage for your travels, at no extra cost. Read on below to find out what’s newly included, and how to make a claim. 

Travel cancellation and curtailment coverage

Canceling a fully-booked trip or cutting a trip short can be stressful, especially if you’re stuck having to pay out-of-pocket for your lost journey. If you’re an N26 You, N26 Business You, N26 Metal or N26 Business Metal customer making travel plans, you’ll now have extended travel cancellation and curtailment benefits, including pandemic coverage for claims relating to COVID-19. This trip cancellation and curtailment coverage is valid for all trips abroad, and for trips to destinations farther than 100km from your home in your country of residence, which begin on or after January 22, 2021. 

If you have to cancel an upcoming trip or cut a trip short because you or a travel companion is diagnosed with an epidemic or pandemic disease such as COVID-19, you’ll be able to claim compensation.

In addition, you’ll now also be covered up to a maximum amount of €10,000 if your trip is interrupted or canceled because you or your travel companion are placed into an individual quarantine due to exposure to a virus. In this case, you must have been specifically singled out as an individual case, and ordered to quarantine by the government or a public authority. 

Please note that you must not have traveled against government or public authority advice. This new pandemic coverage will not cover cases where a quarantine applies generally to the wider population or a region, or to the place you are traveling from, through, or to. For the cover details, please refer to the policy Terms and Conditions.

Emergency medical travel assistance

If you’re traveling abroad for necessary reasons during a pandemic, it helps to be prepared against the unexpected. For extra peace of mind, N26 You, Business You, Metal and Business Metal memberships now come with extended emergency medical travel assistance that includes pandemic coverage for trips abroad.

This means that if you develop a sudden, unexpected illness, injury or medical condition that could cause you serious harm while on a trip overseas—including being diagnosed with an epidemic or pandemic disease such as COVID-19—you’ll be covered for emergency hospitalization and medical treatment, along with medicine costs, medical transportation, and repatriation assistance, if necessary.

Plus, with access to the 24/7 medical assistance hotline from Allianz Assistance, we’re always only a dial away if you need to speak to someone, wherever you are in the world.

Please note that you must not have traveled against government or public authority advice. For the cover details, please refer to the policy Terms and Conditions.
