Travel Insurance to Egypt

You can’t go to Egypt without insurance. Therefore, millions of tourists going in 2021-2022 to see the pyramids and enjoy the beauty of the resorts will need a policy. They will need to be insured against Covid-19, accidents, and other problems that can be encountered during and after of a flight abroad. 

If something happens to the insured during the trip, he will not have to pay from his pocket or relatives. Instead, you will only need to contact a representative of our insurance company, documenting the insured event and providing supporting documentation.

Non-flight and non-departure insurance 

One of the risks you can insure is flight cancellations and postponements, as well as the accompanying financial loss from prepaid services. Non-flight insurance is included in the policy against a flight to Egypt from your country of residence. If the flight was cancelled due to technical problems, weather, or even a call about a bomb planted at the airport, the tourist will receive a compensation for the lost money. It is also possible to insure against non-departure to Egypt from the countries through which he gets there in transit. 

Moreover, it is even possible to include in the cost of the policy the return of your tickets due to various circumstances that require you to return or not to leave the country.

Unfortunately, none of us is insured against accidents. Problems can be any kind – falls, injuries, bites of poisonous animals (including sea animals) and more.

For example, there is a special diving insurance in Egypt, which is issued for fans of scuba diving. This is a popular activity for those tourists who come to the Egyptian Red Sea coast. Full insurance for diving in Egypt covers any risks, allows to compensate medical care, and any expenses, up to repatriation to the home country. 

Also, travel insurance in Egypt can cover loss of your luggage, its damage or theft by third parties (including airport employees).

Liability insurance is another important option offered by the company. What is it? Suppose you have rented equipment, rented a car or other equipment. In the process someone else’s property was damaged. The owner is compensated out of the sum insured.
