Travel insurance is an insurance plan that will cover unexpected events while you are travelling such as medical expenses, trip cancellation, lost luggage, flight accident and other losses incurred while travelling internationally.
Unexpected events can drain your time if you have to make all the arrangements alone in a foreign country whose language you may not speak, drain you financially if you have to be hospitalized abroad for many days.
Travel with fewer worries. Our travel insurance plans cost only a fraction of your trip and can protect you from unforeseen expenses if something unexpected happens when you are travelling.
Travel insurance can be arranged to cover the exact duration of any trip, or a “multi-trip” policy can cover an unlimited number of trips within a set time frame. If you travel two or more times a year multi-trip cover can be cheaper.
The Schengen Visa has made traveling between its member countries (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Liechtenstein) much easier and less bureaucratic. Travelling on a Schengen Visa means that the visa holder can travel to any (or all) member countries using one single visa, thus avoiding the problems and expense of obtaining individual visas for each country. This is particularly beneficial for persons who wish to visit several European countries on the same trip.
The Schengen visa is a “visitor visa”. It is issued to citizens of countries who are required to obtain a visa before entering Europe. The purpose of the visit must be leisure, tourism, or business. This means you only need one visa for all the countries in the Schengen area. For those people who need a visa, travel insurance covering repatriation and medical expenses is compulsory.
