Comprehensive cover when travelling to Sardinia
With luxurious resorts and phenomenal beaches, Sardinia is home to ancient ruins and quaint villages – the perfect setting to enjoy a sunny escape.
If you choose to explore Sardinia, you’re sure to have an incredible time. However, before you go, it’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest travel information by:
- Visiting the FCDO website – so that you’ll have plenty of time to prepare for Sardinia’s entry requirements.

Enhanced Covid-19 Travel Insurance for Sardinia
There are new and exciting ways to be able to travel this summer.
Chris Rolland, AllClear CEO, commented: “At AllClear, we care about making travel safe for people with medical conditions. We want to make sure freedom to travel is an equal right for everyone. Vaccination passports will play a key role in unlocking our freedom to travel as we return to the new normal.”
In fact, three in five British adults (61%2) back the introduction of vaccine passports and now that many countries are now accepting ‘proof of Covid vaccination‘ as a way to fulfil entry requirements, Brits once again have a real opportunity to travel.
While vaccinations help keep travellers safe, travel insurance is still essential for all holidaymakers. A policy with enhanced Covid-19 cover included can help protect you and your holiday when it comes to cancellation costs.
With AllClear, providing you choose a policy that includes cancellation, you’ll have generous cancellation cover up to £25k, giving you the reassurance you deserve.
What should a Travel Insurance policy for Sardinia cover?
Want to be confident in your choice? When buying travel insurance, look for high-quality cover that includes:
Emergency medical expenses – As long as you have declared all pre-existing medical conditions, this will help protect you against any unforeseen circumstances while you’re away.
Repatriation to the UK – This will cover the costs if you need to be medically transported back to the UK. The GHIC scheme does not provide cover for repatriation.
Cancellation and curtailment – cover for cancelling or cutting short your holiday.
Baggage and personal property – covering your personal property should they get lost, damaged or stolen while you’re away.

Do you still need travel insurance when travelling to Europe if you have a GHIC?
Travelling safely is more important than ever. As we all know, the unexpected can happen even on holiday. So, to avoid any emergency medical claims, you’ll need comprehensive travel insurance as you cannot rely solely on your Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). This is because a GHIC card does not provide cover for all circumstances.
Once your EHIC card has expired, you can request the GHIC card as a replacement. To do so, visit the official website.
