Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is essential for any foreign trip. While you should have a European Health Insurance Card for travel to Europe, this only covers you in limited circumstances.

Travel insurance should cover your posessions, medical emergencies and other unforseen circumstances that may otherwise leave you stranded. If your airline fails then your travel insurance will should be there to help pay for you to get home. You'll also want to consider the legal protection as this will cover you if you accidentally injure someone else in an accident.

Travel insurance doesn't cover you for certain activities - if you are likely to be doing any of these then make sure you purchase additional cover.
