Our policies include enhanced COVID-19 cover for FREE. Travel insurance for China will cover you as long as the FCDO is not currently advising against travel.
In China, healthcare isn’t provided for free for UK citizens. Comprehensive travel insurance is essential in case you have an unexpected medical emergency while visiting. China Travel Insurance will give you peace of mind knowing you’re protected against extensive medical bills and cancellation costs.
It’s time that you travelled with the UK’s most trusted Travel Insurance provider1.
Home to The Great Wall of China, The Temple of Heaven and The Grand Buddha of Leshan,China has a wealth of historical, architectural and cultural treasures.
Given how vast China is, it’s no surprise that health care varies greatly. Standards are inconsistent between rural areas and the big cities. It’s common for patients to be expected to make a deposit before receiving any medical treatment. In a medical emergency, you could be expected to pay between 3,000-7,000RMB (roughly £300-700) upfront.
On top of that, many western medications are unavailable. Should you need to be medically transported back to the UK, you could be looking at an additional £85,000 for the cost of repatriation.
Comprehensive travel insurance is vital if you want to visit China and avoid unexpected medical bills. Comprehensive travel insurance for China will also help protect you against cancellation costs. With one way flights to China costing around £495, your trip is not just a holiday; it’s an investment worth protecting.
Unexpected bills can mount up when travelling. To protect yourself and your trip, look for high-quality cover which includes:
Emergency medical expenses – To ensure your policy remains valid, you must have declared all pre-existing medical conditions to be covered for medical emergencies while travelling.
Repatriation to the UK will enable you to receive emergency medical transport back to the UK without worrying about the cost incurred.
Cancellation and curtailment – if you have to cancel or cut short your trip, this will cover you for the costs.
Baggage and personal property – if you lose, damage or have your personal property stolen while on holiday, this will cover you for the cost.

Here’s an insight into their experience:
“This is my third time using AllClear. They are quick and straightforward to use. They are also competitive and will advise of the cheapest way to achieve your objectives. I spend a lot of time in China, and they advised me to extend my cover to cover both of two trips (of 5 months and 3 months, with the UK break in between). The marginal cost was minimal, making my second trip virtually insurance cost-free. They saved me money! I am 70 and diabetic(2) and take statins. A great find!” – Ian
