The situation around the coronavirus is constantly changing: National borders are opening and closing, and countries are repeatedly placed on Switzerland's quarantine list.
Many trips still cannot take place as planned. Spontaneity and flexibility are currently in demand. Anyone wishing to spend their autumn holidays abroad at short notice should consult the travel advice of the FOPH and the FDFA before booking. There you will find various information on the regulations applicable to people living in Switzerland. Those who prefer to spend their holidays in Switzerland should find out about possible measures taken by the individual cantons. Some cantons, for example, require people to wear masks in shops.
Countries you can travel to now
Get an overview of potential holiday destinations: ERV (Europäische Reiseversicherung), a subsidiary of Helvetia, has compiled a list of countries for which there are no travel warnings or other restrictions (in German).
If you book your autumn holidays at short notice in a country for which no travel restrictions apply, you are fully covered again with Helvetia's travel insurance. The insurance cover also applies if you take out new insurance and book a trip now. For more information on our services in connection with the coronavirus, please refer to our FAQ travel insurance.
