We follow the recommendations from The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs.

Business trips today

Business trips within Sweden still take place every day, maybe it is a meeting with a customer where you live or maybe it is a trip with the train to visit an office in another town. Our business travel insurance is also valid for shorter trips. Maybe a computer has gotten stolen on the train? Or did a phone break during the sales meeting? In cases like those, having a business travel insurance is grateful.

Is your company going on a business trip abroad?

The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs advises against non-necessary trips, which business trips are not considered to be. Many companies have despite this chosen to postpone their travels during the spring and summer, but eventually a business-critical trip might have to be done. In those cases, it is especially important to have a business travel insurance which can cover e.g. costs for care if an employee becomes ill in covid-19 during the trip or if you realize that you will need to rebook or cancel your trip.

Some tips for you who are traveling abroad

  • Look up in advance how the possibilities to maintain distance, wash your hands and similar at the destination are, this to help to avoid the spread of the virus and also to make you feel safe.

  • Are there any travel restrictions you should be aware of before going? Such as showing a negative covid-19-test when entering the destination? Or is there perhaps a quarantine rule? Visit Sweden Abroad to read updated and reliable information about different country’s restrictions due to the virus.

  • Keep in mind that the health care system at the destination might be struggling with providing everyone with health care due to the special circumstances and that there is a higher risk for you having to be repatriated home in a larger extent. Our business travel insurance can help you with this cover when it is needed.

  • If a lockdown would take place or if the airline company would cancel flights, what alternative ways are there for getting home safely?
