Comprehensive Travel Insurance for Poland

Poland travel insurance covers you for travel to Poland. To prevent any unexpected medical bills you’ll need this type of insurance as it covers both medical emergencies and cancellations. It will also provide you with support should you face any medical-related issues while you’re away.

Although it may not be an obvious holiday destinatio, Poland should not be underestimated in terms of its beauty and diversity in what it has to offer. From dense forests to beautiful cities, Poland has something for everyone – whether you’re looking for breathtaking nature or historical culture.

However, before you go, you will need to take out comprehensive travel insurance, so that you can travel with peace of mind.

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

Do you need Travel Insurance for Poland?

While in Poland, as a UK resident, your EHIC (European Health Insurance Cards) will provide cover in terms of basic medical treatment. However, EHIC is only valid for UK residents in Europe until 31 December 2020. Therefore it is essential for you to take out travel insurance for any trip to Poland.

So that you can make the most out of your trip look out for high-quality cover which includes the following:

  • 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 are travelling.

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.
