Travel Insurance for Italy VISA

Travel Insurance for Italy VISA

Pizza, pasta, olive oil, parma ham… That’s already enough to draw most to Italy! Not to mention the famous Milan fashion scene, the history of the Colosseum in the ancient city of Rome, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the legacy of Renaissance art.

Of course, there are also the picturesque seaside regions of Amalfi and Sardinia as well as the rolling hills of Tuscany if that’s more your thing. But before you start planning your trip to Italy, there is one thing you need to do beforehand, and that is to get Italy Schengen Visa.

What are the Italy Schengen Visa Requirements?

When it comes to getting a Schengen Visa, as part of your visa application you will need to purchase travel insurance. It is understandable to go for any cheap Schengen Travel Insurance that you find for your Schengen Visa Application, however, you will need a policy that meets the following Schengen requirements.

  • Minimum coverage of at least €30,000 (approximately $33,000 or £26,000) for Emergency Medical Expenses.
  • It should cover all member states of the Schengen Area.
  • Cover any expenses which might arise in connection with repatriation for medical reasons, urgent health attention and/or emergency hospital treatment or death.

This is where Voyager Europa Travel Insurance is here for you, as our policy is different from most travel insurance policies. Our Voyager Europa is an approved Schengen Visa Travel Insurance policy that you can purchase to successfully complete your Schengen Visa application.

Cover also includes the cost of repatriation back to your home country if medically necessary.

If your departure from your home country is delayed for more than 12 hours and you choose to abandon your trip, instead of a payment for delay, you are covered for the cost of the trip under the Cancellation or Curtailment section of cover.

   Travel Insurance Missed Departure Cover Icon

These are a few of the reasons why getting travel insurance is a good idea before you travel so that you are not left out of pocket should the unexpected happen. Furthermore, Voyager Plus Travel Insurance has a wide range of features and benefits, which are just not available on cheaper products, see the policy wording for full details.
