Why do you need travel insurance for Gibraltar?

Gibraltar is a fantastic destination. Thousands of Brits visit ‘The Rock’ year-on-year, both on cruises and as its own unique holiday hotspot. Those visiting rely on their travel insurance to protect them should the unexpected happen. Gibraltar is currently on the ‘Green List but the pandemic has taught us all that it’s best to stay protected when travelling abroad.

As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, many holidaymakers have faced financial loss. Those with high-quality cover were able to turn to their travel insurance providers for irrecoverable loss. In fact, members of the Association of British Insurers (ABI) are expected to pay out £152 million on travel insurance claims incurred in 2020. 

Travel insurance is now more important than ever before. You’ll need comprehensive cover for cancellation costs and unexpected medical expenses.

Comprehensive cover when travelling to Gibraltar

When it comes to travelling, it takes more planning than it used to. So before travelling to Gibraltar make sure you:

  • Check the latest travel advice from FCDO; this will help you understand Gibraltar’s entry requirements 
  • Check the ‘Traffic Light System‘ for quarantine requirements on return to the UK after visiting Gibraltar
  • Buy comprehensive travel insurance that includes enhanced COVID-19 cover

Enhanced Covid-19 travel insurance for Gibraltar

Travel continues to adapt as the pandemic evolves. To reflect these changes, we continuously refine our products and services. Our Covid-19 cover has been rated Superior by a leading independent UK Consumer Champion and is included with AllClear policies at no extra cost.

You may be wondering if you still need travel insurance for Gibraltar if you’ve been vaccinated. While the COVID-19 vaccine helps keep travellers safe – travel insurance remains essential. In fact, 40%2 of AllClear customers surveyed said travel insurance is more important to them since the Covid-19 Pandemic.

We’re delighted that the UK’s vaccination programme has been and continues to be a success. Chris Rolland, CEO of AllClear, recognises the positive impact of the COVID-19 vaccination and its  “enormous impact on holidaymakers”. 

So, get the cover you deserve from the UK’s most trusted travel insurance provider2.

What should a travel insurance policy for Gibraltar cover?

When searching for comprehensive cover look for a policy that includes the following:

  • Emergency medical expenses – cover for any emergency medical expenses for unforeseen circumstances while you’re away. To make sure you’re fully covered you must declare all pre-existing medical conditions.
  • Repatriation to the UK – it’s vital to include repatriation (medical transport) back to the UK in your policy. Without this cover, you could face an extensive bill.
  • Cancellation and curtailment – cover for cancellation or cutting short your holiday due to medical conditions or other unforeseen events
  • Baggage and personal property – if your bags or personal property get lost, damaged or stolen while you’re away.

Will you be covered if you’re travelling during the COVID-19 pandemic?

There are three things to check so that you can make sure you're covered:

  • You must be fit to travel
  • The FCDO must NOT have advised against travel to your destination - check the FCDO travel advice
  • You must follow the local government advice for your destination, checking and following their guidelines and entry requirements

You can then be covered for emergency medical expenses and cancellation for a positive diagnosis of COVID-19, with AllClear travel insurance with enhanced Coronavirus cover. Existing policyholders should read our Frequently Asked Questions if your trip is affected by Covid-19.

GHIC and travelling to Gibraltar

Travelling to Gibraltar and confused about the validation of your EHIC card following Brexit? As long as your EHIC was issued before the end of 2020, it will remain valid until its expiry date.

Once your EHIC expires it will be replaced with the Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) as part of the Brexit agreement. GHIC is free via the official website.

Before travelling, you should know that the GHIC is still not a substitute for comprehensive medical travel insurance.
