Why travel to Spain?

Spanish wine, Spanish food, Spanish sun - What more could you want? Whether you’re planning on having a long weekend in Barcelona, relaxing on a beach in Cadiz, or partying the night away in Majorca, you’re sure to have great memories of your holiday in Spain.

While the coastal resorts are catered for British tourists with the “Club 18-30” package holidays, take a trip to mainland Spain for a taste of true Spanish hospitality.

Why do I need Spain travel insurance?

  • Hospital bills - In case you're one of the 1,100 unlucky Brits who end up in hospital in Spain each year (according to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office)
  • Emergency assistance - You can be promptly assisted as most policies offer a 24 hour emergency helpline
  • Thinking about backpacking? - Insuring your gear will give you peace of mind if you lose them or if they're stolen

Get covered for:

    • Medical assistance - Your medical costs could be covered if you're unwell and in need of medical care while on your holiday
    • Repatriation - You could be safely transferred to the hospital near your home if you're ill or injured
    • Cancellations - Get covered if your flights are delayed/cancelled or if your travels have been disrupted due to your airline going bust
