You wouldn’t be surprised to hear AllClear recommending travel insurance!
But did you know…
For many countries you are now required to show proof of cover before you can enter?

Here is the complete list of countries that you cannot enter without travel insurance:
While not all countries will insist you buy travel insurance before entry, many will still insist you get cover on arrival. As this is likely to result in a high premium, it makes sense for you to get cover in place well in advance of you trip. That’s without even mentioning the benefits of having cancellation cover!
