AllClear Comprehensive Cover for Austria

Austria is a cultural hive widely considered to have set the benchmark in standards in music, fine art and architecture for the rest of the world to follow. From the romanticised, timeless city of Vienna to the rich alpine lushness of the rural picturesque countryside, Austria is a most charming part of the European landscape. A love of nature, tradition, music, fine art and stunning architecture have been the backbone of the Austrian personality for hundreds of years. A strong Christian culture leaves iconic Christmas winterland impressions on the world and holidays such as Easter and Christmas transform the city skies which become adorned with lights of every colour in celebration of worship and tradition every year. When visiting Austria we are sure you will find something of a cherished memory to keep with you in your heart for many years to come. Let us travel with you and cover you fully with our 5-star independent rated insurance policies so you can sit back and take in the stunning culture of this most beautiful of countries.

Do you need Travel Insurance for Austria?

It’s essential that you know why you need travel insurance and what you need it to cover. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions then you have to have cover in place before you leave the UK in case you require emergency treatment while you’re away in Austria. Every year tens of thousands of British holiday makers travel without the right insurance they require to cover their individual needs and, according to The Independent, a claim is made every minute by UK residents abroad. We here at AllClear can cover you up to £15million for emergency medical expenses and we cover pre-existing medical conditions,regardless of age. While you are away you may need medical treatment for an unforeseen medical event unrelated to a pre-existing medical condition. Even a trip to a local General Practitioner abroad can be very expensive and should you require medical treatment then you could be faced with a life-changing medical bill at the end of your holiday. You may also require repatriation back to the UK. Without travel insurance these situations can be extremely costly and can be so easily avoided with a simple, comprehensive medical insurance plan in place before you leave. Let AllClear take the worry out of travelling and leave you the time to relax and enjoy Austria knowing that we’ve got you covered.

Thinking of Skiing in Austria?

Austria is one of the world’s most popular ski destinations with world famous resorts such as the Ischgl and the Soelden. If you are thinking of enjoying skiing in one of these dramatically splendid landscapes, then it is vital that you add winter sports cover to your policy. This will ensure that should you require medical attention whilst skiing then we will be able to supply you with the help that you need. Winter sports can increase certain risk factors of your holiday, so, for us, it is essential that we know what your plans are and if you are skiing then we can have the correct cover in place for you.

Travel Restrictions when Travelling to Austria

Due to current world health affairs, travel restrictions and lockdowns put in place by local and national authorities have made it very difficult for us not only to travel but to know if we can still get sufficient cover before we travel. Since March 2020 we have been working tirelessly in order to ensure that we can still provide our customers with as much cover as we possibly can. We are able to offer full cover as long as the UK government is not and does not advise against travelling before your trip. If restrictions are in place then unfortunately no cover can be given. Please contact our help centre for more information. Remember, providing there are no restrictions in place then we can offer you full cover! Please familiarise yourself with the official FCDO travel advice for Austria.

AllClear Coronavirus Cover for Austria

We can offer our AllClear complete enhanced Coronavirus cover for medical and associated costs and for cancellation with a COVID-19 positive diagnosis. As long as travel advice allows travel to Austria then you will be fully covered by AllClear for medical costs for any treatment needed for Coronavirus.

Does it make a difference if I am Vaccinated?

At this present time there is no difference between insuring someone who hasnt had the Coronavirus vaccination and someone who has. Any changes to this information will be updated as soon as any developments occur should they do so.

AllClear Travel Tips for Austria

Speaking the Language in Austria

The main language used in Austria is German. You will find it used almost everywhere you visit. In some parts of the west of the country you may find Bavarian dialects sometimes called Austro-Bavarian. You shouldn’t have trouble communicating with shop and hotel staff in English as tourism from the UK has been rife in Austria for over half a century and the locals are well versed in international communications.

AllClear Flexible and Enhanced Cover for Austria

At AllClear, we like to keep our policies as flexible as we can in order to provide our customers with a policy that is tailored to suit their specific requirements. AllClear policies offer fully removable cancellation and excesses. Our policies can also be enhanced significantly with optional extras such as golf cover, cruise cover, winter sports cover and gadget cover. Ask our friendly advisers about what optional extras might be right for you!

How much will your Travel Insurance to Austria cost?

Your travel insurance premium will be based on your pre-existing medical conditions to start with. Your age will also contribute. The cost of medical treatment in the country or countries you are visiting as well as how long you are planning to be there for will all be contributing factors when it comes to the final premium of your policy. Finally any optional extras that you might require for any specialist activities you may be doing or possessions you will have with you are away will also affect the price of your policy. Call us today for a quote!

What Should a Travel Insurance Policy for Austria Cover?

Firstly you will need an insurance policy that has all of your pre-existing medical conditions declared within. You’ll want to make sure that, should you require any emergency medical treatment for a pre-existing condition or for any unforeseen medical event, all costs are taken care of under your insurance policy. A policy can also cover your personal possessions that you are taking away with you – including cover for your passport and cash. An medical insurance policy can also cover you for the cancellation or curtailment of your trip – should you need to return home early due to medical circumstances. Ensure that a policy has everything you need and be sure to tell our advisers of any optional extras you may need so we can help you find the right policy and get you fully covered and ready to go! A good policy should offer you cover for:

  • Emergency medical expenses – pre-existing conditions, unforeseen events & repatriation to the UK should all be included in your policy
  • Cancellation and curtailment – any loss of money due to cancellation or curtailment of your holiday can also be covered
  • Baggage and Personal Property – personal property such as bags, clothes, passports, jewellery & cash and cards can also be covered for loss, theft and damage while you’re away
