Do i Need Travel Insurance for Benidorm?
A common question we get asked is do I need travel insurance for Benidorm?
Well to put it plainly this is a choice that only you can make.
With the 2 main hospitals here in Benidorm now refusing to take EHIC cards.
The IMED Levante and Benidorm Clinica, and when I say refuse they ask you to leave and get a taxi to the Villa Joyosa hospital.
This is the local Spanish NHS hospital and will cost you over 20 Euros in a taxi just to get there (20 Euros back as well!) so is it worth spending around £6 for at least the basic medical insurance for a week to have that piece of mind.
Not only for health reasons but also for you’re luggage, belongings and anything that goes wrong at the airport (those French do like to strike)
With having travel insurance they have you covered, and not just for you’re holiday to Benidorm but for any other holidays you have planned
With free child cover on most family travel insurance plans and over 100 sporting activities covered for the price of a McDonalds it is excellent value.
Most come with UK emergency help available 24/7, regulated by the FCA in the event of an emergency, you can be confident that you will have someone to you’re assistance no matter what the situation is.
You now find that travel insurance companies also go above and beyond if you are forced to cancel you’re holiday to Benidorm.
It's normally around £5000 cancellation cover, up to £10 million in medical cover and personal belongings cover for standard travel insurance.
You also get extras added on like offering tailor made plans for wedding insurance, golf insurance, business insurance and you’re family covered in one policy.
When it comes to travel insurance you’re health is paramount.
If anything does go wrong you need a travel insurance plan that provides you and you’re family the cover that you expect and not have a company to try and wriggle out of things.
Always shop around, not just for the cheapest travel insurance for Benidorm but one that suits your needs.
Read the small print and always factor in what you have to pay upfront if you ever need to make a claim.
