Why do you need Travel Insurance for Santorini?

Santorini Travel insurance is essential. When it comes to travel, it’s best to be prepared with comprehensive medical travel insurance. The right level of cover will help you avoid any unexpected emergency medical bills and cancellation costs while you’re away.

Comprehensive cover when travelling to Santorini

Part of the Cyclades islands complex, Santorini is known for its white cube-shaped buildings. The village’s iconic architecture contrasts against the surrounding blue accents of sky and sea. 

When visiting Santorini, you’ll have the chance to experience sensational sunsets, explore volcanic craters, all while taking in what the Greek culture has to offer. 

Before you go, there are a few extra things to consider as part of your holiday preparations for travelling during the Covid-19 pandemic:

  • Stay up to date with the latest travel advice and entry requirements for Santorini by visiting the FCDO website.
  • Stay informed on quarantine requirements when returning to the UK by checking the ‘Traffic Light System‘. 
  • Protect yourself and your holiday by buying comprehensive travel insurance that includes enhanced COVID-19 cover. 

Enhanced Covid-19 Travel Insurance for Santorini

Many Brits are hoping to enjoy a holiday this summer. In fact, 56%2 of adults we suveyed  say holidays as more important to them since the start of the pandemic. With three in five British adults (61%3) backing the introduction of vaccine passports and more destinations being added to the ‘Green List‘ – there is now a real opportunity to travel overseas. 

Chris Rolland, CEO of AllClear, says, our research clearly suggests that the majority of people are willing to do as much as they can to regain their freedom to travel.”

While this is excellent news for those that are double vaccinated, Travel Insurance with Covid cover remains essential. It offers you protection against cancellation costs if you contract Covid or need to isolate before you go. 

So that you can plan a holiday with confidence, AllClear offers generous cancellation cover up to £25k.  

What should a Travel Insurance policy for Santorini cover?

Everyone and every holiday is unique, so you need to find travel insurance that suits your individual needs. When searching the market, look for a policy that includes:

Emergency medical expenses – helps you to avoid paying out for any unexpected medical bills while you’re away. But you must declare all pre-existing medical conditions during the screening process for your policy to be valid. 

Repatriation to the UK – covers the cost of medical transport back to the UK. This is not covered by the GHIC

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

Baggage and personal property – covers you for lost, damaged or stolen property while you’re away.
