School Group FAQs

Do JS Travel Insurance cover Coronavirus for School Group Travel Insurance?

Answer : Yes we cover for cancellation if you are infected before you go on your trip, Medical if you are infected while you are away and Overseas Return Quarantine if you are unable to return .

However you are not covered if your area goes into quarantine and you are unable to travel.

If one of the children gets ill while away, will the Insurance pay for a carer /parent to travel out to help look after them ?

Answer: The policy will only provide cover if it is medically necessary for a parent to travel out to them. This needs to be agreed upon and accepted by the emergency assistance service. In these circumstances, a child will never be left without adult supervision. For example, if the school trip ends and the child is still in hospital, the emergency assistance company will arrange for a parent/escort to stay with the child.

Can we change the names of the people in the group who are named on the policy issued?

Answer : Yes we can update names up until the date of departure. However we are unable to change a name if the person we are replacing is making a claim.

Answer :No all travellers can be on one certificate. If one person or more want to have their own policy and certificate, we are able to separate them from the others.

Are the Benefits per person or for the whole group?

Answer : The Benefits shown are per person and not for the complete group. ie if thr is Cancllation Cor of £3000 on th Policy , that means each prson can claim for that benfit for that amount .
