This Policy Allows You to Change your Travel Dates for ANY Reason

Can’t travel due to last minute changes? Here’s what you can do.


Have you ever booked a holiday only to realise that you cannot make it and is not eligible for the insurance claim? Or have you ever lost a winter sports equipment only to realise that you are not insured? Such situations are typically not insured under the standard travel insurance. However, with Aviva’s new riders and coverage, you will be able to make claims in such cases.

Here are some additional features that Aviva provides:

#1 Cancellation/Change of Travel Plans

Have to change your travel dates due to various reasons? Be it sudden work commitments or a change of mind, do not fret. With Aviva’s new feature, you will be provided with a 50% reimbursement for such a claim.

#2 Coverage for Novel Reasons

Going for a sports holiday? Most insurance plans do not insure against winter sports such as skiing. Aviva has introduced new riders so as to better cater to consumers’ travel needs by providing coverage for winter sports (e.g. skiing), water sports (e.g. diving), and golf vacations.

Here is a list of winter sports that are covered by the additional rider:
