Avo Insurance revamps its travel protection plan to offer COVID-19 testing as an add-on
with complimentary Coronavirus Disease Protection.

 

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, every industry is adapting to the new normal. Under the current travel restrictions and border control, Avo Insurance (Avo) launches a new travel protection plan for travellers who need to return to Mainland China. To alleviate travellers’ fear of the pandemic, Avo has partnered with CUHK Medical Clinic (CU Clinic) to offer COVID-19 (SAR-CoV-2) Real-time PCR test (Deep throat saliva test) to Avo’s clients. Insurance holders are now eligible to add extra benefits to their China Travel Protection or Greater Bay Area (GBA) for a worry-free and safe trip. The additional services include the aforementioned COVID-19 testing which is supplemented by Avo’s complementary Coronavirus Disease Protection.

 

Avo offers affordable GBA Travel Protection and China Travel Protection to everyone, with policy premiums starting at HKD8 and HKD36 respectively, providing coverage on accident, emergency medical and related services, and more during the trip. Policyholders of GBA Travel Protection or China Travel Protections are eligible to extend their protection with COVID-19 testing by CU Clinic and Coronavirus Disease Protection for a total of HKD950.

 

Under the extended services, policyholders are required to arrange an appointment with CU Clinic for a deep throat saliva test before departure. After 1 to 2 working days from the specimen submission date, the test report will be delivered by a local COVID-19 testing institutions recognised by the HKSAR Government. In the event of testing positive for COVID-19, policyholders can redeem hospital cash of HKD10,000 during the 30-day coverage period of Coronavirus Disease Protection (starting from the departure date).

 

Winnie Wong, Executive Director and CEO of Avo Insurance said, “In response to the new travel norms, Avo introduces optional services to our new travel protection plans, allowing policyholders to customise coverage according to their needs. We hope to provide security to travellers, especially those who must visit Mainland China for work or emergencies, and allow them to travel with peace of mind. Being the first virtual general insurer in Hong Kong, Avo will continue to monitor the changing developments of COVID-19 and provide insurance protection to support the recovery of the travel sector and other industries.”
