Why do you need Travel Insurance for Skiathos?

Comprehensive cover when travelling to Skiathos

Skiathos is an idyllic Greek island known for its superb, sandy white beaches. If you choose to visit Skiathos, you’ll have the chance to explore coves, enjoy panoramic views and dine in traditional tavernas.

When planning your trip during the pandemic, there are a few extra things to consider.

Enhanced Covid-19 Travel Insurance for Skiathos

If you’re hoping to travel this summer, you’re not the only one. 45%2 of people we surveyed have said they want an overseas holiday this year, with three in five British adults (61%2) backing the introduction of vaccine passports.

Chris Rolland, CEO of AllClear, says, “A vaccine has transformed fear to hope and will bring forward people’s travel plans.”

There has certainly been a surge in travel as countries have opened their borders. However, even if you have had a double dose of the vaccine, travel insurance is still essential. 

One reason is to protect your holiday from cancellation costs. With AllClear, providing you choose a policy that includes cancellation, you’ll have generous cancellation cover up to £25k, helping you to plan your trip with confidence. 

What should a Travel Insurance policy for Skiathos cover?

Need to choose a travel insurance policy but not sure where to start? When searching the market, look for comprehensive cover that includes:

Emergency medical expenses – Covering you for any unexpected medical expenses while you’re away as long as you have declared all pre-existing medical conditions during the screening process. 

Repatriation to the UK – This is the only way to cover yourself for medical transport back to the UK as other schemes, such as GHIC, do not cover such circumstances. 

Cancellation and curtailment – Cover you you need to cancel or cut short your trip. 

Baggage and personal property – covering your personal property should they get lost, damaged or stolen while you’re away.
