Find the best travel insurance for Poland

Views Plans

Poland is located at the heart of the European continent, sharing borders with seven countries: Germany, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, and Russian Kaliningrad.

Filled with a variety of striking landscapes, from the snow-capped peaks of the Carpathian and Sudeten Mountains in the south and the rolling central lowlands to the sandy beaches of the Baltic Sea coast in the north. Poland has more than 1,300 lakes throughout the country.

With so many diverse topographical regions to visit, planning ahead for any unexpected medical event or other issues before starting out on your journeys is essential. Consider travel insurance for your vacation or business adventures.

Travel Insurance Requirements for Poland

The Poland visa travel insurance requirement is a minimum coverage of 30,000 Euros. For non-U.S. residents, travel insurance must be purchased before the issuance of your Schengen Visa. With several Schengen Visa Insurance plans to choose from, VisitorsCoverage can help you decide which one is right for your needs.

For international and non-US residents, the best fit may be International Travel Medical Insurance.
