Schengen Travel Visa Insurance

Before issuing you with a Schengen visa, many embassies will require proof that you purchased an adequate travel insurance policy – usually called an “insurance certificate”. When subscribing to one of their plans, this document should provide details about the plan as well as your ages and other pertinent data as well as coverage provided.

Heymondo or World Nomads offer comprehensive travel insurance plans tailored specifically for the Schengen region at competitive prices; their Standard plan meets visa requirements in terms of repatriation coverage as well as providing more than EUR 30,000 worth of medical coverage. Alternatively, Mondassur provides its Europe Access plan at highly competitive rates that also complies with European consulate criteria when applying for a Schengen visa.

Cost of Schengen visa insurance plans depends on which plan, age and coverage options you select, with no-deductible travel insurance plans being the ideal solution in case of emergencies.

Schengen visa insurance serves primarily to cover emergency expenses such as hospitalization and repatriation costs, prescription medication costs and sudden onsets of preexisting conditions. When travelling on organized tours, complimentary travel insurance policies may even be included within their cost.
