COVID coverage if no quarantine required

Recommended Posts

The UK no longer requires quarantine if you test positive for COVID. Are there any policies that will still cover trip cancellation/interruption if the cruise ship denies boarding or removes you from your ship?

If the cruise line denies boarding for a positive test, that would be considered a medical reason for cancellation. You’d have to have a doctor’s confirmation of diagnosis and orders not to travel. That is a separate issue from quarantine.


If you are denied boarding or disembarked in a country that does not require quarantine, you still have to test negative in order to board a flight to the US. Most likely that is still considered trip interruption and/or trip delay whether or not you are confined because the medical condition kept you from completing your trip.


Talk to a professional like one of the people at Trip Insurance Store before you buy. There are lots of policies that cover COVID as any other illness and would cover illness related cancellation or delay.
