When researching and comparing various policies – look for cover that includes the following:
The Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) does not replace or substitute travel insurance; it replaces the former EHIC card following Brexit.
Your EHIC will become invalid after its expiry date. You’ll then need to request a GHIC online via the official website.
With a GHIC card, you’ll have access to the same level of medical care as residents of the participating country. However, it doesn’t provide medical cover for all circumstances – making travel insurance vital for any trip abroad.
Here’s what our customers have to say about us:
“Bought a policy with All Clear today for a trip to Crete and got cover for my conditions. Spoke to a very helpful and polite young lady called Emily. I Will definitely use AllClear again for my next trip.” – Tracey.
The Telegraph reported that Crete is one of the islands that are expected to make the Green List. It’s anticipated that Crete will soon be a low-risk destination for tourists due to its current Coronavirus rates, vaccination rates and availability of direct flights.
The Government will be continuing to review and we will need to wait for the official announcement.
NHS tests cannot be used for travel purposes. Only private tests will be accepted; they can be booked in advance online. For further details, read our Fit to Travel blog and check the entry requirements of your chosen destination before booking a trip.
