Switzerland travel insurance
Before you buy travel insurance for your holiday to Switzerland, 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 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

Do I need a visa for Switzerland?
If you’re a British citizen with a valid passport then you won’t need a visa to travel to Switzerland.
Healthcare in Switzerland
Post-Brexit, neither the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) nor the Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) will work in Switzerland. This means that it’s as important as ever to have travel insurance in place to cover the costs of any unexpected medical treatment or repatriation to the UK. You can find more information about healthcare in Switzerland here.
If you have pre-existing medical conditions you must declare these before you buy your policy to ensure you’re fully covered.
Can you help if I need medical treatment while in Switzerland?
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.
If you need emergency medical assistance just give our team a call any time, day or night.
