Looking to buy travel insurance for future trips?

If you’re thinking about buying a travel insurance policy from us, here’s what you need to know

I’m thinking about buying a travel insurance policy, will I be covered for coronavirus? 

Our multi-cover policy, Select and Cover, provides cover for coronavirus-related travel disruption. So if you and your partner or family were to need at least 2 other types of cover as well as travel insurance – such as mobile phone insurance, gadget insurance or motor breakdown insurance – Select and Cover may be right for you.

Select and Cover is available for customers with an HSBC bank, savings, mortgage or credit card account who are registered for online banking.

By ‘family’ we mean your spouse, domestic or civil partner and dependent children living with you who are under 18 – or under 23 if they’re in full-time education and living at home outside of term time.

Select and Cover Worldwide Travel is provided by Aviva Insurance Limited. The maximum age for cover is 70.

For details of the coronavirus cover offered as part of the Select and Cover travel option, see What’s covered under HSBC Travel Insurance.
