Oman travel insurance

It’s important to buy travel insurance before any trip abroad, so if you are going to Oman soon, make sure you buy a policy before you go. Before you select a policy, however, think about these points:

  • The total cost of your baggage
  • The cost of your trip or holiday – Unforeseen events sometimes force you to cancel your holiday; if that’s the case, know whether you can get your money back
  • Do you have any pre-existing medical conditions to declare?
  • The activities you’re likely to be doing – if you’re planning anything really extreme, we can offer you extra cover with our extreme sports policy
  • Also, don’t forget to check the latest travel advice for Oman from the FCDO

We can cover your kids for free!

Healthcare in Oman

Public and private healthcare services are available in Oman and are of a good standard; similar to those in the UK. However, British nationals are required to use the private healthcare services in Oman. The cost of medical treatments and necessary drugs can be quite expensive in Oman, so it’s important to make sure you have medical travel insurance in place to cover your trip.

It’s important to remember to speak to your GP at least 4 to 6 weeks before your trip to check whether there are any vaccinations or other preventatives needed.
