Paris is one of the most romantic cities in Europe, filled with culture, historical architecture and art – it’s easy to see why it is known as the ‘City of Love’. It overflows with fashion and food and is one of the most visited cities in the world.

If you’re planning to visit Paris, whether it’s your first time or hundredth – you’ll want to ensure your trip is a care-free trip, so take out travel insurance you can trust.

AllClear policies provide cover for up to £15 million for emergency medical expenses, including enhanced Covid-19 cover.

Do you need Travel Insurance for Paris?

In a post-COVID-19 world, travel insurance is more important than ever. Although Paris isn’t far from the UK, it can still be costly should you need any treatment while you’re away. It’s therefore vital that you’re fully covered.

Comprehensive travel insurance should include:

  • High levels of cover for medical bills – even those related to COVID-19 and for repatriation, should you need to be returned to the UK as a result of a medical problem.
  • Cancellation and curtailment cover in case an emergency prevents you from going on holiday or means you have to cut it short.
  • Baggage and Possessions Cover – should your items be lost, damaged or stolen while you’re travelling.
