What if I am unable to return to Belgium because of an enforced quarantine or lockdown abroad or an infection by the Covid-19?
If you fall ill abroad, Europ Assistance will assist you and follow up your case. We will take care of the medical expenses in accordance with the subscribed assistance formula, after examination of your file by our doctor. For all epidemics, including the Covid-19, Europ Assistance will always have to respect the rules imposed by the local authorities (e.g. access to cities or hospitals) and take into account the sanitary regulations issued by the competent authorities (e.g. quarantine).
If you are not ill but only affected by a quarantine measure or lockdown, we advise you to contact your tour operator, your airline or your hotel in connection with the extension of your stay.

In some cases, the Belgian authorities will decide what means they use to repatriate Belgian travellers.
