Schengen Cover Travel Insurance

Most embassies now insist you take out a travel insurance product before you apply for a travel visa. Purchasing adequate travel insurance is one of the requirements of the Schengen visa. The Schengen visa is a visa which allows the holder entry to any of the 26 Schengen countries.

The following are the requirements for Schengen travel insurance: – The travel insurance should include medical evacuation / repatriation coverage of at least EURO 30,000. The insurance company must have a representative office in Europe and the insurance must be valid for duration of stay in the Schengen states.

Our ‘Schengen  Cover’ travel insurance level of medical cover together with the cover for any pre-existing conditions satisfies the requirement for a Schengen visa. In addition the embassies require a letter from the travel insurance company.

Travellers up to the age of 70 years are covered.
Maximum duration 180 days.

Please note: This product is only suitable if you are visiting the Schengen zone only, if you are travelling to another country outside the Schengen zone then this is NOT suitable. If you are travelling via a country outside the Schengen zone and will not be leaving the airport terminal then this policy is suitable.

Can I buy this policy if I am travelling to Europe?

Yes but only if you are travelling to the Schengen zone. If your trip includes non-Schengen countries then you can’t take this policy out.

I don’t require travel insurance for part of the trip..

If you are travelling to the Schengen zone and your trip includes some time in a non-Schengen country like the UK, for example, you can’t simply buy the policy for the time spent in the Schengen zone.

Our policies require you to be covered for the entire trip. Your claim may be rejected PLUS the hospital bills are expensive in the UK – so why take that chance?

How long does it take to receive the policy documents?

If you buy online the policy documents will be emailed straight away. And you will receive the 1 page visa letter which is compliant with the embassy. And we have never had anyone phone us to say the embassy never accepted their travel insurance.

Why is this policy cheaper than the other policies?

The Schengen Visa Cover is a policy especially designed for those wanting a policy just to get a Schengen visa and the policy offers no frills. We know its expensive to travel so we know some travellers want the absolute basic level of cover.

The Schengen Visa Cover is also exclusive to Easy Travel Insurance and is available only online.
