Do You Need Travel Insurance for Norway?

Here at AllClear we are committed to helping our customers travel within the security of knowing that they have travel insurance in place that will cover them when they need it most. When travelling to Norway, it’s important that you don’t get left with any costly medical bills to pay.

As a UK resident you’ll likely be charged for medical treatment abroad. If you have pre-existing medical conditions then it is vital to have the correct policy in place before you travel. Should any unexpected medical event occur, then you should have cover in place to take care of the finances for you, leaving you to concentrate on the most important thing: getting better.

Our AllClear policies give medical expenses cover up to £15million including repatriation to the UK. You can find more information at our AllClear travel insurance information page.

Comprehensive Cover for Norway

Over the past few years Norway has become a more and more popular holiday destination for UK holidaymakers offering mountainous landscapes, green cities and a rich Viking history, steeped in folklore and historic stories of invasion and conquering. Norway’s close geographic placement with the UK has ensured a colourful relationship fueled by combat and integration that gives the beautiful country of Norway an ancestral place in our hearts.

Norway is a popular destination for fishing, walking, skiing and, of course, cruising. The stunning cruises along the Norwegian Fjords are in many bucket-lists and the glorious images of grandiose peaks overseeing beautiful clear waters has become an experience to covet for many. You can get specialist cruise travel insurance to ensure that you are covered in the wilderness of deepest Norway.

Thinking of Cruising along the Norwegian Fjords?

If you are dreaming of taking a beautiful Norwegian cruise then add cruise cover to your policy to make sure you are fully covered for all eventualities. Visit our AllClear cruise travel insurance for further details and specifics on the special cover you will need for cruises.

Skiing in Norway

Norway has some of the most spectacular skiing opportunities anywhere in Europe and is a definite destination for any Winter sports fan. When skiing in Norway it’s vital to have the correct cover in place for your specific activities. Just add Winter Sports cover to your policy and see our winter sports travel insurance information.

When in Norway’s vast wilderness, if you require emergency medical treatment it can be very difficult and very expensive. Medical treatment in such places will often require a medical helicopter to retrieve and deliver you to safety. That’s why it’s important to know that you have the right policy in place before you travel that will cover you for your needs.

Even if you are staying on dry land and visiting one of Norway’s famous cities such as its stunning capital Oslo, you are still likely to be charged for any medical treatment or doctor seen. Even replaced prescriptions can be much more expensive abroad than at home. Let us cover all your needs with a five-star policy.

We have helped thousands of our customers over 2 decades with expensive medical costs for medical treatment abroad.

Coronavirus Cover in Norway

Our AllClear policies offer medical expense cover up to £15million and now include enhanced Coronavirus cover for a COVID-19 diagnosis. This will include extended stay cover and cover should a member of your party test positive for COVID-19. Please visit our Coronavirus help centre for more information or call us for a quote today!

What Should a Good Insurance Policy for Norway Cover?

A good insurance policy will give you comprehensive cover over a number of sections and will also include a number of separate optional extras as well. Look for a policy that covers all your pre-existing medical conditions as well as any unforeseen circumstances. A good policy will also offer extra cover such as:

  • Cancellation and curtailment – should you have to cancel your holiday due to unforeseen or pre-existing medical circumstance, then the right policy will ensure that you don’t suffer financial losses yourself
  • Baggage and Personal Property – you can get your personal items covered including your passport should they get damaged, lost or stolen while away
  • Tailored Optional Extras – a good policy might also offer you the chance to tailor your policy for your specifics such as skiing or cruises

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.

Travel Restrictions when Travelling to Norway

If the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) or the World Health Organisation (WHO) have placed travel restrictions on your destination then no cover can be offered at this present time. If restrictions also apply to cruise holidays then no matter the destination again, we can offer no cover. Providing there are no travel restrictions applied to your destination or type of holiday then we are happy to give you a quote. Please check the FCDO travel advice about Norway.

Will your EHIC card cover you in Norway?

EHIC (European Health Insurance Cards) will not cover you for some aspects of your cruise the same way an AllClear policy can. As of 31 Dec 2020, the current arrangements between the UK and the European Union (EU) will likely change and UK citizens may not get the same cover as before. Make sure your policy covers you for repatriation as well as the EHIC cards do not cover for medical transport back to the UK. For more information please visit our information about EHIC and Brexit.

How Much is Travel Insurance for Norway?

Travel insurance premiums are based on a number of factors including your age and any pre-existing medical conditions you may have. The duration and local medical costs of your destination all affect the price. Call AllClear for a quote today on 0800 077 777.
