Vacationing soon? Make sure you're #COVID19 Covered with Pacific Cross.

Pacific Cross, one of the leading medical and travel insurance providers in the Philippines, has unveiled its latest offering, Travelsafe Tripguard with COVID-19 Coverage, just in time for the summer months.

A testament to the company's commitment to providing reliable and relevant assistance as health and travel restrictions continue to evolve, Travelsafe Tripguard with COVID-19 Coverage offers enhanced benefits for safety and protection. These benefits include COVID-19 In-Patient Care under the existing Medical Treatment Benefit, Hospital Income Benefit for COVID-19 related hospitalizations, and as well as Trip Termination Benefit if diagnosed with COVID-19 during an overseas or international trip.

All these for Pacific Cross Clients' added protection while still enjoying coverage for 24/7 worldwide emergency assistance, coverage for baggage loss, loss of travel documents, and flight delay, among others. Schengen-approved plans are also available for individuals, families, and groups.

Pacific Cross also offers Travel Insurance Plans for foreign nationals traveling to the Philippines for business or tourism purposes, who are required by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) to obtain, prior to arrival, travel insurance for COVID-19 treatment costs, with a minimum coverage of USD 35,000.00 for the duration of their stay.

Tourism on the Upswing

Pacific Cross acknowledges that despite the added steps and requirements to ensure health and safety, gradual ease of restrictions is set to spark an influx of domestic and international travelers.

The Department of Tourism (DOT) has reported in January that there has been an increase in domestic travelers in major tourist destinations. In Boracay alone, tourism arrivals ballooned by 1.15% percent with over 170,000 visiting the island in 2021. A separate report by analytics firm Tangere echoes this trend with a reported 7 out of 10 Filipinos desiring to push through with their travel plans for 2022.

"As many have been keeping close to home during the course of the pandemic, we understand that going on a trip, whether for work or a vacation, is something Filipinos are looking forward to," shares Mr. Vic Tanjuakio, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pacific Cross. "We want to ensure that our clients enjoy worry-free travels by providing them with coverage they can count on."
