AXA Hong Kong increases benefits for customers under quarantine

AXA Hong Kong has introduced the Free Protection for Inbound Travellers Programme, which provides additional benefits for travel insurance customers under compulsory quarantine upon returning to Hong Kong.

AXA said the programme is in response to the risk of unforeseeable accidents during customers’ stay in quarantine hotels or community isolation facilities. Until Dec. 31, holders of designated travel insurance policies will receive free coverage for up to 14 days from their arrival in Hong Kong, with no additional registration needed.

The coverage provides up to HK$200,000 (SG$35,034) for accidental death or permanent total disablement, up to HK$500,000 for personal liability, and HK$5,000 for baggage and personal belongings protection, up to HK$1,000 per item.

“At AXA, our purpose is to act for human progress by protecting what matters,” the insurer said. “Since the start of the pandemic, we have launched a series of additional programmes, such as Post-Vaccination Protection and Free AXA SportCare Programme, to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our customers. By extending the protection to travel insurance, our customers can remain worry-free throughout their overseas visits, vacations or business trips and the quarantine period afterwards with our comprehensive protection.”
