What is it?

Schengen insurance is for travelers to Europe and throughout the Schengen Area.

View Plans

A trip to Europe can be a magical experience. The cities and country-sides offer both historical perspectives and modern touches at every turn.

Whether you’re traveling to Europe from the U.S., India, Japan or anywhere else in the world, travel insurance should play a role in your trip planning. This is especially true if you need a Schengen visa, which requires proof of travel insurance.

Why Europe travel insurance matters

The countries in Europe are packed into a relatively small continent. To make it easier for citizens and visitors to travel freely across borders, 26 European countries have come together under the Schengen Agreement. Some countries (such as the U.S.) don’t require a visa to visit these countries, while others do require a visa.

If you’re a traveler from a country that does require a visa for the Schengen Area, the Schengen visa is the only one you’ll need to travel within all these countries. You’ll need to purchase travel insurance, as you'll be required to show proof of insurance.

Even if you don’t need a Schengen visa to travel around Europe, it’s still a great idea to purchase a policy so that you have health insurance coverage on your travels in case of any accident or illness.

Europe travel insurance offers the following benefits:

  • Medical coverage
  • Emergency medical evacuation
  • Repatriation
  • COVID-19 coverage
  • Medical coverage during travel
  • Acute onset of pre-existing condition
