does travel insurance cover medical expenses incurred when travelling in Germany?

the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) and the new Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which was created after the UK left the EU, will typically offer subsidised or even free state-provided healthcare when a medical emergency arises in Germany. however, your EHIC/GHIC won’t cover the cost if you need emergency medical transport back to the UK. this is when your travel insurance policy comes into action.

most of the insurance policies provided by albert & eddie will cover both repatriation costs, should it become necessary to leave the country for medical reasons, as well as emergency medical care in Germany. however, to ensure you are fully protected from the get-go, you must let us know whether you have any existing medical conditions during the quote process. if you don’t, you might not be protected for any claims you subsequently make.

however, it’s crucial to be aware that the majority of the brands on the platform offer the option to increase your protection against Covid-19 with a coronavirus policy extension. so, this is something to bear in mind when taking out a quote.
