Travel Insurance is absolutely vital when travelling abroad, because without it you could be vulnerable to expensive bills if you suffer an illness or injury abroad. Many people wrongly assume that their European Health Insurance Card or EHIC will cover all of their medical costs when travelling in Europe, however this will not cover the costs of getting you home or, in some cases, even pay for all of your treatment and medications. Furthermore, if you are travelling outside of Europe the costs of medical treatment and repatriation can be colossal.
Holidaysafe’s medical travel insurance provides cover for any costs that you might incur if you suffer a sudden and unforeseen injury or illness whilst on your holiday or trip.
