Travel insurance for countries on the red list

Battleface Insurance Services is offering reassurance to travellers that all battleface travel insurance products will continue to be valid and cover them if they need to travel to any of the African countries that the Government has added to the UK’s red list. 

Katie Crowe, Director of Communications at battleface said: “There will still be travellers, who for family or other reasons still need to travel to Africa. Battleface travel insurance still provides valid travel insurance to protect them. Our products protect travellers regardless of traffic light colour and FCDO advisories and are available and accessible for all. In addition, travellers currently in the region can purchase a policy on the move.” 

“Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, battleface has continued to provide relevant travel insurance policies to people who both need to and want to travel and as the travel landscape continues to be complex, we will continue to offer travel insurance that fit travellers’ needs.” 

The UK government has added ten countries to its red list - South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), Namibia, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Angola and the FCDO has also advised against all but essential travel to these countries based on concerns around a new COVID-19 variant.
