Comprehensive Lanzarote Travel Insurance

Travelling safely in 2021 during the Coronavirus pandemic
Our latest Annual Survey revealed that, since the COVID-19 pandemic, safety while travelling is of even higher importance to our customers.
In fact, more than half (51%) of over 55s said they wanted the best insurance cover (as opposed to cheapest) that fully covered them for a wide range of COVID-19 risks.
Chris Rolland, CEO of AllClear said: “Our July 2020 data highlighted a profound change in attitudes towards travel insurance. Safety has become a top priority when travelling abroad”.
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.
Coronavirus vaccination and travelling to Lanzarote
We’re delighted that the UK vaccination rollout continues to be so successful. It’ll help keep people safe while travelling. Many of our customers have welcomed the vaccine. 92%* of those we surveyed have now had at least 1 dose of the vaccine. When restrictions come to an end, 73% plan to travel abroad.

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.
What should a policy for Lanzarote include?
A good medical travel insurance policy will cover medical bills abroad and will include repatriation to the UK. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions then it’s essential that you have cover in place for:
Emergency medical expenses – pre-existing medical conditions as well as unforeseen circumstances.
Cancellation and curtailment – due to medical conditions or other circumstances
Baggage and Personal Property – if your personal property is lost, damaged or stolen

Will the new GHIC cover medical expenses in Lanzarote?
As of Dec 2020 the EU will no longer issue EHICs to UK residents. The new agreement between the UK and the EU is the Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC).
The GHIC will offer the same cover in Lanzarote as the EHIC did. This means that you will still not be covered for repatriation back to the UK.
So it’s still important to have a comprehensive medical travel insurance policy before you travel and check the FCDO travel advice for Spain, which covers Lanzarote.
