Do You Need Fuerteventura Travel Insurance?
At the time of publishing (4 December 2020), in regard to Covid-19, the FCDO travel advice is not against Fuerteventura along with the other Canary Islands. Check the FCDO travel advice for Spain – including the islands – for updates.
If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, travel insurance will give you the peace of mind you need if you were to have a medical incident abroad. It’s extremely important, during this Coronavirus pandemic more than ever, to ensure that you have a policy in place to avoid unnecessary complications and large expenses that you could incur for receiving treatment abroad. We recommend purchasing your travel insurance as soon as you book your holiday as this way, you’d be able to ease your mind knowing that cancellation cover will apply immediately should you be forced to cancel your trip.
As Spain is part of the European Union, if you have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), you’ll have access to free state-provided medical healthcare. This means if you need medical treatment, you’ll receive the same as a Spanish national. However, the EHIC card does not include being repatriated back to your home country and does not cover all medical treatment. As we prepare to leave the EU, from 31st December 2020 your EHIC card will not guarantee you cover which is why it is extremely important to have comprehensive travel insurance as well.
