Covid19 travel insurance for Costa rica

Trawick International Covid insurance

  • For US residents
  • For Non US residents
Safe Travels Voyager insurance by Trawick International is available for U.S. Citizens and U.S. Residents traveling to Costa Rica with Covid-19 medical expenses covered and treated the same as any other sickness. It satisfies the travel health insurance Costa Rica requirements listed below:
  • Provides a minimum coverage of $2,000 for potential or extended quarantine lodging expenses due to Covid19.
  • Provides best trip insurance for covid coverage for the entire duration of travel in Costa Rica.
  • Provides guaranteed travel insurance for covid cover for medical expenses of at least USD $50,000.
The Safe Travel Voyager insurance plan provides a visa letter stating that the Costa Rica health insurance for visitors covers Covid 19 illness, which is used to complete the Health Pass document and QR code generation. Therefore this plan cannot be bought if the traveler has already left the US. This visa letter can be downloaded online after buying the plan online. To only satisfy the Costa Rica health insurance for visitors requirements, you can use a $0 trip cost and the date you purchased your plane ticket or travel package as the trip deposit date, this will reduce the price of the Safe Travels voyager plan.
The Safe Travels Voyager plan is a trip cancellation plan which means you can insure the value of your trip. However, Costa Rica does not care whether you insure your trip or not. If you enter $500 or less for "trip cost", you will pay the lowest possible rate. Also, the policy is not cancellable (except within the first 10 day "free look" period) since it is meant to be used in case of trip cancellation.

Note that only some specific situations are listed for refund of non-reimbursable costs of your trip (up to what you insured). If you want more flexibility, many people can opt for a "Cancel For Any Reason" rider (or CFAR). If you invoke the CFAR rider, you only get 75% of your money back and you must cancel at least 24 hours before you depart. Note that this policy is technically not extendable as it is meant to cover a single trip only.

Travel insurance in times of COVID19

Travel to Costa Rica

Greetings Travelers!

Lovely Costa Rica was a country to quickly open up their borders to tourists and many have flocked to their fascinating jungles and sandy beaches to get some respite from the daily grind. In part, this is due to the careful screening that the Costa Rican government is doing of travelers going into their country.

They require that each non-Costa Rican have travel medical insurance that includes: (1) at least $50,000 coverage for unexpected medical expenses AND (2) $2000 benefit for accommodation should a person be found positive for COVID-19 and have to quarantine for 14 days. The second requirement is difficult to find. However, travelers do have some options.

One option is to purchase one of the two plans offered by Costa Rica. The other option is to get a plan from Trawick International. Which plan you need depends upon where you reside. If you reside in the US, then you need to purchase the Safe Travels Voyager plan. If you reside outside the US, then you can purchase either the Safe Travels International or Safe Travels International Cost Saver. I will discuss all these options below.

The Safe Travels Voyager plan is a trip cancellation plan. Costa Rica does not care whether you insure your trip or not. If you enter $500 or less for "trip cost", this will give you the lowest possible cost of the insurance. However, you can take advantage of the cancellation coverage if you want to insure the value of your trip (that is, what you will lose should you have to cancel before you leave on your trip). In that case, should you not be able to go on your trip for a set reason, such as: illness, death in the family, jury duty, etc, you will get 100% of the non-reimbursable portion of your trip (you will have to show documentation of your loss). If you want more generous cancellation coverage, you can add a "Cancel for Any Reason" rider to your policy (not available in all states) for a significant additional fee. However, this gives you complete flexibility in cancelling your travel plans. Note that if you invoke this rider, you only get 75% of your money back and you must cancel 24 hours before your set to depart.
A recent addition to this plan, is that you can upgrade the trip delay benefit from $2000 to $4000 or $6000 per person. This allows a more generous daily coverage of your accommodation ($150, $300, and $450 per person per day) which may be more in line with your expected accommodations. The Safe Travels Voyager plan offers coverage of up to $250,000 for medical expenses (exceeding requirements for Costa Rica) with no deductible.

For non-US residents, you can purchase the Safe Travels International or Safe Travels International Cost Saver plans. These two plans are travel insurance only and they do not offer coverage to insure the value of your trip. However, in addition to the maximum of the policy that you purchase, each policy will have a $2000 trip delay benefit which can be used for quarantine due to COVID-19 (works out to about $150 per person per day of quarantine). For Costa Rica, you need only purchase the minimum $50,000 medical maximum to meet their requirements, but you can choose to exceed these requirements if you so choose.

After you purchase either of the plans above, you will get a confirmation email within 5 minutes of your purchase (please check your spam folder). In this email, for each person on the policy, there will be a link to a "VISA LETTER". This is the document that you will upload to the Costa Rican government's website as part of your "Health Pass" which you must get 48 hours before your departure flight.

You go to the Costa Rican government website to fill out information for each traveler to complete the Health Pass (salud.go.cr) for each traveler. Choose "International" as your insurance plan and upload the visa letter when given an opportunity to certify your insurance.

When completed, the website will give you a QR code (scannable code) which you will have to take with you to be allowed to board the plane to go to Costa Rica. Besides your passport, we recommend having a hard copy of the visa letter and ID card of your insurance (also in that confirmation email). The visa letter is to show any official to prove you have the required coverage for Costa Rica and the ID card is for you, in case you should have need of the policy while you are on your trip.

We hope you enjoy a smooth trip to lovely Costa Rica!

Christina.
