Do you really need travel insurance to go to Brazil?

Travel insurance means that you can move through different cities in Brazil, from Salvador to Rio De Janeiro, visiting incredible beaches knowing you’re covered for any unexpected illness, theft and stolen personal items.

It also means that should you need to be repatriated for medical reasons, you’ll not be met with high hospital bills. You’ll also be able to claim back any costs should you need to cancel or curtail your trip due to any medical reasons.

Brazil has a lot to offer. Whether it is the historic walking tour or a private island tour, you want to be able to see all the sites the Brazil has to offer without worrying about your purse strings should anything happen.

AllClear has your essential travel insurance checklist so you are covered for all eventualities.

Brazil and Coronavirus cover

Before you travel to Brazil, it is good to know that with AllClear cover you’ll be able to claim back the cost of your flights and or hotel costs if you need to cancel due to having contracted the virus. There is also cover if you have to extend your trip due to contracting the virus. Travel is unpredictable so don’t leave it to chance, it is always better safe than sorry.

Ensuring you have comprehensive travel insurance means you will be able to focus on enjoying the many adventures in Brazil.. At AllClear we tailor your policy to you, so if you are looking for single trip cover or an annual multi trip policy, we are here to help. We also now offer enhanced cover for Covid-19.

What is comprehensive travel insurance?

Whatever additional benefits you choose to personalise your policy is up to you. Emergency medical cover, cancellation and curtailment, loss of property and repatriation are all important benefits to look at. These are the most essential cover needed when travelling to any country. When choosing a policy, make sure that the cancellation and medical amount is adequate for travelling to Brazil.

Imagine being stuck in the Amazon and needing to be airlifted out to the nearest hospital. Or even spraining an ankle or falling because you missed a step and you land funny on your arm. If you do not have comprehensive travel insurance you could be paying out more that you bargained for out of pocket.

Brazil and Pre-existing medical conditions

It is very important that you let us know of any pre-existing medical conditions you are still having tests, investigations or treatments for within the last two years to make sure you are fully covered.

Even if you suffered a heart attack 10 years ago, if you’re still taking medication or having treatment for it, it is important to declare all your conditions. This is so that if you have an potentially have an unexpected flare up, you do not have to pay the medical bills out of pocket because you declared all your conditions.

You can go through the medical screening on our website now at your own leisure or if you would like to discuss it in more detail, our professional agents are here to help you.

Travel Restrictions when Travelling to Brazil

Apart from the various vaccines you may need to take before entering Brazil, it is always necessary to check the latest entry requirements from the government website. Now with the global pandemic, it is more of a prerequisite to check to see what the latest travel advice is by the FCDO and the WHO.

As long as the FCDO and the WHO do not advise against all travel or all but essential travel to Brazil, our policy will be able to cover you for your trip. Check the FCDO travel advice for Brazil before you travel.

  • You must follow the local government advice for your destination, checking and following their guidelines and entry requirements
