If you are thinking of visiting Andalucía, but concerned about health risks due to the Covid pandemic, there is good news for non-resident foreign travellers to the Region. Throughout 2021, foreigners travelling to Andalucía will benefit from free Covid related health insurance, in an initiative of the Junta de Andalucía regional government, now underway.
As mass vaccination programme in countries such as the UK, Spain and Belgium is now rolling out, travel companies are experiencing a surge in bookings as people anticipate being able to travel again soon. Andalucía is ready and willing to welcome visitors back with open arms – provided they have an approved negative Covid test result prior to travelling.
In the event of contracting the virus during your stay in Andalucía, the specially devised insurance policy – through Europ Assistance – is in place for you – and your family members if affected (spouse, partner, children, grandparents & grandchildren) – should you fall ill with Covid, need medication, hospitalization, and require an extended stay in a hotel, apartment or registered tourist accommodation for recovery or quarantine.
This specialist insurance includes 24-hour telephone support during your stay, should you require it, and the insurance cover will be valid all over the region of Andalucía throughout 2021 until 31st December. For further details visit:
