Comprehensive Cover when travelling to Dubai

As the biggest city in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is famously modern with futuristic architecture. If you have a medical emergency while you’re away, there are fine medical facilities available. However, you won’t have any access to free treatment, and you will likely need proof of travel insurance in Dubai to receive medical care.

That’s why we provide specialist medical Cover to Dubai for your peace of mind, including a 24-hour emergency medical helpline.
