Insurance For Visa Schengen
If you require a visa to travel within Europe’s Schengen Area (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary Iceland Italy Latvia Lithuania Luxembourg the Netherlands Norway Poland Slovakia Slovenia Spain Switzerland) then travel insurance plans meeting Schengen requirements are required as part of your application for admission. Plans must cover at least 30,000 euro in medical expenses as well as trip cancellation/repatriation coverage or acute onset preexisting condition protection – though additional coverage might also include trip cancellation, repatriation coverage as well.
Many people forego purchasing insurance for visa schengen applications because they believe it will be costly or nothing will go wrong while in the Schengen zone. Unfortunately, not having such protection could result in your application being denied by an embassy, so purchasing this type of policy provides peace of mind and ensures your trip will remain protected in case any emergency arises during travel.
When looking for a Schengen visa insurance plan, look for one with a low deductible. Plans typically offer options with deductibles ranging from $0 to $2500; the lower your deductible, the cheaper the premium.
Numerous companies provide this kind of insurance, such as Atlas Travel, WorldTrips, International Medical Group and Trawick International. Each plan is approved by the European Union and provides proof that will expedite visa applications. Purchase can easily be done online and will arrive shortly afterwards via email.
