What should a Travel Insurance policy for Sicily cover?

When searching for travel insurance there are a few things to consider before making your choice. ook for a policy that includes:

Emergency medical expenses – This will help you to avoid any unexpected medical bills whilst travelling. However, you must remember to declare all pre-existing medical conditions to ensure you’re fully covered. 

Repatriation to the UK – Repatriation costs are not covered by GHIC. Without comprehensive travel insurance, you could face an extensive bill should the worst happen while you’re away.

…Italy holiday insurance

“I needed to purchase holiday insurance for an Italy holiday next March. Even though both myself and my husband have health conditions to add, the system was clear and explanatory every step. Decided for the gold insurance which covers us for Covid related concerns too. Second time I have purchased for us and would highly recommend!” – Paula
