Schengen travel insurance provides you with travel and medical insurance for all the 26 countries that make up the Schengen Area – covering you for trips across the continent or holidays in any nation within the Schengen Zone. AXA is the leading provider of this type of insurance.
Here is the complete list of countries that you can visit with Schengen insurance (provided you have a visa) : Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland.
A requirement for obtaining a Schengen Visa is to have insurance covering you in all states in the Schengen Area up to medical costs of €30,000. The easiest way to do this is to obtain Schengen travel and medical insurance from an accredited provider, such as AXA, which is the leading brand for this type of insurance.
Not all travelers require a Schengen Visa to travel to the Schengen Area, as countries including the U.S.A., Mexico, Brazil, and Canada have visa-free arrangements with the Schengen Zone. However, it is still strongly recommended you obtain insurance as all your medical costs, or those you may incur should something go wrong on your trip, may not be covered without obtaining travel insurance. If you are planning to travel to more than one Schengen country or want to be flexible with your itinerary, it is also a great way to ensure you are covered in the majority of countries in Europe.
Although it is an essential document to supply when applying for a Schengen Visa, you will also need to supply other supporting documents that outline the reasons for your visit, your itinerary and accommodation plans, as well as how you intend to support yourself and any plans to work or study. Your application may also be rejected by embassy officials – but this is relatively rare as long as all your documents are in order.
Does Schengen insurance cover countries other than those in the Schengen Area ?
Other than those micro states mentioned, no. If you plan to travel to countries outside the Schengen Area, you will need to get insured for trips to those countries as they are not covered by Schengen visa insurance.
AXA can help by providing you with Low Cost Schengen Area travel insurance that meets your visa requirements when traveling to the Schengen Area from as little as €0.99 per day – a fee that will cover you for medical expenses up to €30,000 in all Schengen countries – a price that isn’t too hard on your wallet ahead of your trip! A certificate proving you are insured will also be available immediately, meaning you can get on with your application.
