Why do you need Travel Insurance for La Gomera

La Gomera is the second-smallest island in the Canary islands and is adorned by dark, volcanic mountainous regions and deep, enchanting moss-covered forests. La Gomera has many popular hiking trails and should you require any medical attention it is very important that you have an insurance policy already in place to cover you for the costs of unexpected medical treatment. Should you require a medical helicopter to transport you or even if you just require rehydration, this can be thousands of pounds on top of any other medical treatment that you may need. Visit our AllClear Travel Insurance blog for more information on why you need travel insurance.

Will the EHIC Card Cover Medical Expenses in La Gomera?

While never covering repatriation back to the UK, the EHIC card has helped many UK residents with medical costs while abroad. However as of 31 Dec 2020 the current benefits given to British citizens by the EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) are set to change. That’s why it’s more important than ever that you have a comprehensive travel insurance policy in place before you travel to La Gomera. Visit our Brexit blog for more information.

AllClear Travel Information for La Gomera

The second-smallest island of the Canary Islands, La Gomera was quite the enigma until the late 1950s. Apart from finding brief fame as a stop-over for Christopher Columbus, La Gomera was largely unexplored and unknown until the middle of the 20th century. Even today La Gomera’s steep, dark mountainous terrain and deep green forestry make it quite the acquired taste for holidaymakers.

However, the island is fast becoming a coveted destination by hikers, mountaineers and campers alike and has a number of 3-4 star luxury hotels making this a more and more popular destination for the curious explorer and the activity based holiday-seeker. Ever-increasing popularity and a sense of wonder are ensuring La Gomera is sure to be on lots of people’s bucket lists over the years to come. If you’re thinking of a trip to La Gomera, then let AllClear get you fully covered.

Travel Insurance Prices for La Gomera

A medical travel insurance policy premium will be based on a number of different factors. Pre-existing medical conditions as well as age all contribute, as well as the destination and duration of your holiday. If you add any optional extras to your policy then this will also contribute to your final price. AllClear policies have flexible, removable excesses so this can also have an effect on your premium.
