Travel Insurance Europe
>> Low Cost Travel Insurance - Europe or Worldwide
No point shirking it - no matter where you travel overseas, you've gotta have travel insurance. Europe covers a lot of country from high-density cities to isolated plateaus and you want to feel free to roam.
If you like to travel with others, there are stacks of tour groups roaming Europe with itineraries tailored for the 18 to 20 something age group. Choose a company that's been in the game long enough to have a reputation and do your research. Take the time to compare because you want this to be the best time, not a total dud.
Many of these companies will have their own international travel insurance but you'll find it covers the basics and, naturally, is geared to saving them in the long run. You need your own travel and medical travel insurance for Europe and not to be reliant on the tour company. In fact - the moment you leave Australia you should have travel insurance overseas, even if it's just to cross the Tasman.
If you're not a 'go with a tour group' kind of person you'll be putting together your own itinerary. No doubt Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Venice, but, especially if you're backpacking, there are some out of the way places that beg to be seen, like the stunning, isolated Meteora Monastery in Greece.
Once again, wherever you travel be sure you have the best level of medical travel insurance to Europe. Just think, not only this holiday budget but your budgets for years to come would be blown if you broke your leg hiking the Lasithi Plateau in Crete and needed to be air lifted out or came down ill in Yugoslavia and you didn't have cover.
iTrek provide you with full global travel insurance or, to keep costs down on our already discount travel insurance, we offer 'destination' packages i.e. specifically for Europe. You can take out travel insurance direct to and around your destination or worldwide cover to keep your options open.
Ok - here's the basics you'll need to have for your medical travel insurance (Europe): Medical, dental and hospital expenses, emergency assistance, cash in hospital and for additional emergency expenses, repatriation of remains and personal liability. We do recommend that you look into our comprehensive policy though - take a peek and you'll see why.
It's quick and easy to purchase your travel insurance online with iTrek and you know you'll have both reliable and cheap travel insurance. Europe, in many areas, doesn't have the health care we're used to, which also makes medical and travel insurance - Europe - a bit of a necessity.
