Canadian Airline WestJet Now Offering Free COVID-19 Insurance For International Travel

Canadian Airline WestJet Now Offering Free COVID-19 Insurance For International Travel

WestJet, Canada’s second largest airline, is now offering complimentary COVID-19 insurance for eligible passengers for travel to and from the US, Europe, the UK, Mexico and the Caribbean until August 31, 2021. The carrier joins Air Canada in offering free Covid-19 insurance in an effort to boost sales as more Canadians elect to stay home or travel domestically to avoid Canada’s 14-day quarantine for international travelers.

Originally WestJet’s insurance did not include US coverage but will now cover travel to the United States. On September 25, 2020 WestJet announced that “guests travelling to, through or from the United States are now eligible for the airline’s enhanced $200,000 CAD COVID-19 travel insurance coverage for air-only and vacation reservations. The enhanced coverage will retroactively include all bookings made as of September 18, 2020 and will increase by $100,000 CAD to include up to a maximum of $200,000 CAD at no additional charge to eligible guests.”

Eligible bookings include any WestJet air-only reservation, including WestJet Vacations bookings for travel to and from the U.S., Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe (including U.K.) and inbound to Canada. These trips will be eligible for coverage for up to 21 days for travel into and including August 31, 2021. For one-way travel reservations, coverage is available for up to seven days.

Arved von zur Muehlen, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer, said that “Our research shows that a lack of COVID insurance is a considerable barrier to travel and our guests were seeking the inclusion of U.S. destinations to our travel insurance offering. Eligible guests travelling to and from the destinations we serve can now have an added layer of confidence

AM Best Affirms Credit Ratings of International General Insurance Holdings Limited’s Subsidiaries

AM Best Affirms Credit Ratings of International General Insurance Holdings Limited’s Subsidiaries

AM Best has affirmed the Financial Strength Rating of A (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Ratings (Long-Term ICR) of “a” of International General Insurance Co. Ltd., (IGICL) (Bermuda) and International General Insurance Company (UK) Limited (IGIUK) (United Kingdom). Concurrently, the rating of International General Insurance Holdings Limited (IGI) (United Arab Emirates), now an intermediary holding company, has been withdrawn at the company’s request. The outlook of these Credit Ratings (ratings) is stable.

At the same time, AM Best has assigned a Long-Term ICR of “bbb” to International General Insurance Holdings Limited (IGIC) (Bermuda). The outlook assigned to this rating is stable.

The ratings of IGI reflect its balance sheet strength, which AM Best categorises as very strong, as well as its strong operating performance, limited business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management (ERM).

On 17 March 2020, IGI and Tiberius Acquisition Corporation (Tiberius) announced the completion of their business combination. As part of the combination agreement, IGI exchanged its shares for common shares of IGIC, becoming a wholly owned subsidiary. IGIC is a new public company, listed on the Nasdaq, and is now the ultimate parent of the group. Tiberius and IGI raised approximately USD 146 million as part of the transaction, of which USD 41 million was added to IGI’s balance sheet.

IGI’s strong operating results have been underpinned by robust underwriting performance over the long term. However, the company’s performance is affected by foreign exchange movements, largely through exposure to GBP-denominated business from IGI’s growing U.K. book of business. The company reported a five-year average combined ratio of 92% (2015-2019), despite the impact of catastrophe losses in 2017. AM Best views IGI’s underwriting discipline as a key factor supporting its good financial results and expects the company to report strong, albeit potentially volatile, profits in prospective years.
