Frequently Asked Questions about Travel Insurance for Switzerland

How much is Travel Insurance for Switzerland?

Travel insurance will be based on a number of factors. Age, pre-existing medical conditions, destination & duration will all contribute to your premium. Any optional extras or choosing a policy with a smaller or no-excess will also affect the price. Call our UK based team at AllClear on 0800 077 77 today!

Will your EHIC card cover you in Switzerland?

Brexit will change the way we travel into and around Europe as British citizens. This will affect our costs for medical treatment as well as other things. As of 31 Dec 2020 your EHIC may not offer you the same protection as it has done in the past.

You will most definitely need comprehensive travel insurance when travelling into Europe. For more information visit our Brexit travel insurance page.

That’s why travel insurance is essential for any holiday. We have helped cover over 3 million customers over 20 years. Let us help you today!

What About Travel Restrictions to Switzerland?

Current lockdowns and restrictions have made it difficult at times for us to know where we stand when planning to travel. It is important to get the up-to-date information about travelling guidelines. If FCDO or WHO restrictions apply to your destination then we may not be able to offer you the cover you need. That’s why it is essential to know the Terms & Conditions supplied by your travel and accommodation provider and to check the FCDO travel advice for Switzerland before you travel.
