We have been looking at travelling to Punta Cana for a week in late September. When checking prices, I noticed that Covid Insurance is no longer offered. I contacted my travel agent who told told me that it's pretty much a thing of the past. She told me that you can purchase the "cancel/reschedule for any reason" waivers, but that is only for departing Canada and has no bearing on the return trip.
We are both vaccinated, but I have read stories of fully vaccinated travellers testing positive for their return trip. I understand that the resorts have accommodations for quarantine, but I wanted to ensure we weren't stuck paying twice for a return flight. Apparently that coverage isn't offered? We have full travel medical/cancellation with our charge card, but they do not cover any COVID expenses as the Government has not lifted the "do not travel" advisory. So we'd be covered for a broken leg, but not a missed flight due to a Covid test.
We seem to be stuck between a rock and a hard place. How are other Canadian travellers handling this?Edited: August 05, 2021, 5:42 am
