Israel travel insurance

Before you buy travel insurance for your holiday to Israel, there are a few things to think about:

  • The cost of your trip – if you have to cancel, it’s important to know that you can get your money back
  • The activities you’re likely to be doing – if you’re planning anything really extreme, we can offer you extra cover with our adventure and extreme sports policy
  • How much medical coverage you have – no one wants to think about getting ill or having an accident abroad but, unfortunately, it does happen
  • Always check the latest travel advice from the FCDO for any issues that may have occurred that might prevent you travelling or any vaccinations you might need

We can cover your kids for free!

If you’re going away with your children, we can cover them on your policy at no extra charge, whether you buy an annual policy or single trip cover.

Do I need a visa for Israel?

No, as a British citizen you don’t need a visa to travel to Israel as a tourist. Upon arrival, you’ll be granted leave to enter for up to three months and may be given an entry card instead of an entry stamp in your passport. Make sure to keep this safe with your passport at all times, especially if you’re crossing any borders.

Healthcare in Israel

Healthcare services in Israel are quite efficient and generally well equipped. However, medical treatments are expensive, and you will be required to pay your bill on departure. Hospitals in Israel are insistent on payment and could potentially take legal action if bills are not paid. Make sure you have enough money to cover potential costs, as well as adequate travel insurance to cover any medical treatments and possible repatriation.

Can you help if I need medical treatment while in Israel?

Yes – all our policies come with access to our 24-hour emergency assistance team, so there will always be someone here to help you if you become ill or are injured while abroad.
