Portugal Travel Insurance
If your idea of the perfect holiday is to explore utterly stunning beaches and enjoy year-round sunshine, then Portugal might just be your dream destination. Let’s face it, some European beaches can become samey and boring – miles of sand, sea and relaxing bodies, but in Portugal, especially the Algarve, you will find small coves, gorgeous rock formations and crystal clear waters.
However, it would be unfair to only speak of its beaches, as just a short flight away from the UK; Portugal is also famed for its culture, history and architecture. If you need Holidaysafe insurance for Portugal, we have the policy to suit your trip and budget. *

Key Contact Details and Important Information
Don’t forget to order or take your free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) when travelling in Europe, just in case you need to seek medical treatment during your trip. If you do use the card during your holiday, we’ll waive the policy excess on any medical claim you need to make.
Best Time to Visit
As with most European destinations, Portugal is at its hottest and most popular during the summer months, however, the best time to visit is usually Spring and early Autumn, when temperatures are slightly cooler.
The winter months are usually warm albeit a little rainy, so it’s well worth a visit if you’re looking for a winter sun destination.
What to See and Do
There is so much which can be added to a Portuguese itinerary that you might just have to make several trips to tick it all off, but here are some of our favourites;
- A trip to one of the many beaches in the Algarve is a must, take a dip in the sea, explore the rocks and then find a spot to waste away the day with a good book.
- Jump on a tram and enjoy a ride through Lisbon’s beautiful and historic neighbourhoods.
- Visit Porto’s Riverfront – now a UNESCO World Heritage site
- Take a stroll through the Feira De Barcelos, a traditional rural market which will give you a true taste of Portugal.
- Rolling Atlantic waves make Portugal, and especially Peniche, a great place to try some surfing.
What to Eat and Drink
The wine and port are especially lovely in Portugal, and authentic Piri-Piri chicken is a must try.
