Proof of positive covid test for travel insurance

What proof do travel insurance companies require of a positive covid test as a reason for trip cancellation in order to cover you, does anyone know? Do they take your word for it or do they need a record of a positive lateral flow test, or a PCR, and/or a doctor’s note? How about cancelling directly with flight companies and holiday accommodation providers, does anyone have experience of them requiring proof of covid as a reason not to travel and therefore request a refund? Many thanks πŸ™πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™‚.

I imagine they will definitely need documentary evidence.

Sorry to hear about your husband newhere2021

My DIL got a PCR test when she had +ve LFTs. This was purely for travel insurance and to get her flights rebooked.

This was just before Christmas.

Read what it says in the fine print of your travel insurance.

My NHS Covid app has the results of my registered LFT results and PCR tests on it.

The NHS Covid app has this info, but to get a travel pass, you need to go to the actual NHS app, which basically has info on your vaccines.

But isn't that what you've input yourself?
Surely the policy will require independent verification.
