Travel Insurance for France

Travel medical insurance to France is an urgent requirement for traveling abroad. Therefore, any tourist should take out an insurance policy in advance, considering all requirements.

What should be insured to guarantee safety?

A traveler takes out standard travel insurance to France to cross the border. It includes the following items:

  • Basic medical care;
  • Injuries got on vacation;
  • Payment for medications.

The extended insurance package to France already includes Covid, doctor visits, emergency dental care, outpatient and inpatient treatment, including exacerbation of chronic diseases. Also, it contains medical transportation services, medical evacuation, and obstetric care up to 27 weeks of pregnancy, repatriation, and compensation in case of accidents.

Need to know
Any travel insurance in France must have a minimum coverage of 30,000 euros. This is a basic rule for all Schengen countries. If you do not take it into account, you will be denied the right to enter.

However, these are not all the risks that a tourist may face while traveling abroad. Therefore, if you need insurance in France, it is worth buying a policy, which will be the most likely risk. What can it be? For example, the cancellation of a flight, lousy weather, aircraft discrepancies, problems at the airport, or even a false bomb call. Therefore, trip or flight cancellation insurance is an essential step for your safety. Including your financial security.

Often airport workers can not find the luggage of some passengers. However, even this situation is quite common for insurance companies. For example, premium policies this item as standard. If something happens to your belongings, you’ll receive half the compensation within 24 hours. Then, if the French airport or train station workers cannot find your luggage within 21 days, you’ll be paid the rest of the compensation.

Who may need insurance?

Everyone needs insurance. However, the types and features of insurance for a trip to France will differ in their duration. If your visit takes a few days, then you’ll need a short-term document. For a more extended stay,  take insurance for a month. There’s also six-month insurance. Are you going to work or study? Then take the maximum. After all, if you insure for a year, the price will be more favorable. We also offer a discount on that policy. So, if you need long-term health insurance in France, the cost for 12 months will be more attractive than if you renew several times.

If you play sports, you’ll also need an insurance policy with the appropriate coverage. Consider the risks specific to each case. These may include sprains, bruises, fractures, health problems connected with overheating, or hypothermia. Extreme sports are insured separately: mountain skiing, snowboarding, diving, rafting, and other activities related to increased risks for people.

Therefore, when arranging insurance in France, the cost and conditions will depend on these extra points. Naturally, the more there are, the more expensive the policy and the more protected the tourist will be while traveling abroad.
