Hana Insurance announced on the 14th that it is the only domestic insurance company that can guarantee overseas quarantine costs due to COVID-19 for the next six months.
It is the first time since the operation of the New Product Review Committee that overseas travel insurance, which guarantees quarantine costs due to COVID-19 confirmation, has been granted six months of exclusive use, and has been highly evaluated for its efforts and needs to develop products.
The special contract to guarantee quarantine living costs for COVID-19 breakthroughs during overseas travel guarantees accommodation and meal costs for up to 10 days with up to 100,000 won per day from the date of confirmation in countries where the original travel period is exceeded due to the onset of COVID-19 symptoms.
Since September, the obligation of overseas entrants to submit PCR test results has disappeared, but the Central Disease Control Headquarters recommends quarantine and treatment locally after testing positive for COVID-19 overseas due to symptoms for the safety of passengers different from them.
Depending on the confirmation of COVID-19, this product can ease the burden of additional overseas stay costs that may occur unexpectedly when treatment is needed locally due to symptoms such as severe cough and fever, or when boarding an aircraft is difficult.
In particular, it is expected to be more useful when visiting countries such as Japan for mandatory quarantine for COVID-19 confirmed patients. Hana Overseas Travel Insurance can be subscribed to through Hana Insurance’s mobile website or the one-day insurance app. 해외 여행자보험
An official from Hana Insurance said, “With the launch of the new product, sales increased more than 400% compared to last August, the peak season,” adding, “It is possible to guarantee treatment and quarantine costs due to COVID-19, so family travelers with children and the elderly who need immediate action overseas are well received.”
