Travel insurance

What you need to know about LV= travel insurance

Coronavirus update

In light of the impact that Coronavirus (COVID-19) is having globally, we’ve made the difficult decision to pause the sale of travel insurance to new customers.
We considered a number of different options, such as excluding cover or significantly increasing prices for new customers. We strongly believe this temporary measure of pausing the sale of new policies and focusing on our existing customers is the right decision.
There’s no change for existing customers who already have a policy with us. You can contact us in the normal way if you need to make a claim, and we’re still offering renewals to our existing customers. 
We remain committed to the travel insurance market and this is only a temporary move given the exceptional circumstances. We will continue to monitor the situation closely. 
So, why choose LV=?
