European travel insurance
Europe might be a big place, but that doesn’t mean your holiday insurance has to have a big price, and post-Brexit, travel insurance is as important as ever. Whether you’re after cover for a one-off holiday or multiple trips throughout the year, InsureandGo can save you money.
What’s covered with travel insurance to Europe?
As standard, our policies offer a range of benefits, some of which include:
- Cover for over 50 sports and activities
- Medical expenses and hospital benefit
- Personal accident and liability
- Cancelling and cutting short your holiday
- Abandoning your trip
- Delayed departure
- Accommodation cover
- Personal belongings and baggage
- Personal money, passport and travel documents
- Legal expenses
Another thing to note is that our European holiday insurance policies include all the countries of Europe plus a few that aren’t. We’ve included these other countries – like Egypt and Morocco – in our European cover so we can save you money on your travel insurance. We can do this because these countries are low-risk.

Do I need a visa to travel to Europe?
Currently, British passport holders are allowed to travel through the Schengen zone* without visas for a maximum of 90 days. However, now Britain’s voted to leave the EU, the criteria needed for local UK residents to visit the Schengen zones could change in the future.
Make sure you check out the latest travel advice for travelling to Europe to ensure you have the correct cover for your trip.
*The countries which are part of the Schengen zone are:
Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
Healthcare in Europe
UK residents should carry their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) when travelling in the EU. This will entitle you to free, or reduced cost, medical treatment, but it’s important to still have travel insurance in place to cover any additional costs that the cards don’t cover, or to pay for repatriation back to the UK.
Please note that although Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Lichtenstein used to accept the EHIC, post-Brexit neither the EHIC nor the GHIC will work in these non-EU countries.
It’s always important to check with your GP at least four to six weeks before you go to see if there are any necessary vaccinations needed for the destination you’re travelling to.
