What should Travel Insurance for Denmark cover?

Travel with cover you can rely on, look for a policy that includes:

Medical expenses cover – The GHIC card gives you access to emergency medical treatment while in Denmark. However, the GHIC scheme doesn’t cover all medical treatment.. Therefore, a Travel Insurance policy with medical expenses is essential.

Repatriation –  It can cost up to £10,000 to be medically transported from Denmark back to the UK following a medical emergency. To be covered for such costs, you’ll need a policy that includes Repatriation cover.

Cancellation cover – Without this type of cover, you may not be reimbursed for any irrecoverable financial loss due to having to cancel or cut short your trip, even in the event of having to self-isolate and quarantine as a result of Covid.

Personal property cover – Protect your possession while travelling with personal property cover. This will help cover the cost should you lose or damage your luggage while travelling.

However, November and December is when the Christmas markets are in full swing. The Kongens Nytorv Christmas market is one of the most popular to visit.
