Why do you need Travel Insurance for the Netherlands?

Travel Insurance for the Netherlands will help you travel safely and confidently by covering you for medical emergencies, repatriation and cancellation costs. It’ll give you peace of mind on your travels. 

AllClear branded policies include Superior2 rated Covid-19 cover for FREE to give you the reassurance you deserve. 

Comprehensive cover when travelling to the Netherlands

According to Statista 2021 data, approximately 32% of the visited attractions in The Netherlands were museums, and just over 28 per cent of visitors went to zoos or natural parks. So, now you know how other travellers spent their time in Holland – you can begin planning your own holiday agenda

After all, there is so much to see and do in the Netherlands. Perhaps you’ll want to head to the centre of the tulip bulb-growing district, Haarlem. Or maybe you want to take a boat trip down one of the 160 canals in Amsterdam. Wherever you choose to visit, you’ll need comprehensive Travel Insurance to keep you safe. 

Wondering how you could benefit from AllClear, the UK’s No.1 for Travel Insurance3?

Superior Covid-19 Travel Insurance for the Netherlands

The Netherlands is popular amongst Brits, with 2.2 million visiting before the pandemic each year. So, it’s no wonder that so many of us can’t wait to visit now that it’s on the ‘Go’ List. 

Although it’s deemed safe to visit, Travel insurance is now more essential than ever, especially policy that includes Covid Cover. 

CEO of AllClear Travel, Chris Rolland, said: “A good Travel Insurance policy with Covid Cover is the best form of protection when travelling in a post-lockdown era. Our Superior rated covid cover has been developed by knowledge stemming from 20+ years of industry experience. We’re confident that it can provide you with both protection and peace of mind.”

To prepare for your trip to the Netherlands.

  • Make sure you’re aware of Netherlands’s entry requirements before travelling
  • Follow any local restrictions and Covid-19 measures that are in place
  • Buy high-quality Travel Insurance that includes enhanced COVID-19 cover. 

What Should Travel Insurance for the Netherlands Cover?

Travel Insurance will provide you with reassurance. Policy essentials should include:

Medical expenses cover – even with a GHIC card, you’ll need Travel Insurance that will cover you for all pre-existing medical conditions and the costs of any unexpected medical expenses while you’re away. 

Repatriation – As the GHIC scheme doesn’t cover repatriation, you’ll need Travel Insurance for medical transport back to the UK.

Cancellation cover – Protect yourself against cancellation costs linked to a pre-existing medical condition or the need to self-isolate due to Covid. 

Personal property cover – A policy should include cover for any loss or theft of your personal property, such as your passport, hand luggage or suitcase.

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.

Accident help abroad.

“Had a very good experience with this Travel Insurance when my husband suffered a head trauma when he fell down some stairs in Holland. I travelled out to him where he had great Trauma doctor help and intensive care and hospital treatment. Along with this, hotel accommodation and getting us home by taxis, trains and Eurostar we could not ask for more. No problem with the claim.”D. Shakespeare
