frequently asked questions

all travel insurance policies that can be found through albert & eddie will cover you for emergency medical expenses, personal possessions, lost or stolen travel documents, trip cancellation and repatriation where it is medically necessary, as an example.
most of the brands available through albert & eddie will also offer different levels of cover depending on how much protection you need for your trip. for example, during the quote process you can select how much your holiday costs and only be presented with the policies that offer enough cancellation cover to match your trip and its needs.

does travel insurance cover medical assistance in Ireland?
yes! all brands that are available through albert & eddie include emergency medical cover. this ranges from emergency medical treatment to repatriation cover (bringing you back home if it is medically necessary), provided that you have fully declared any existing medical conditions during the quote process and these have been accepted. in the event that you suffer a medical emergency, all of our policies have a dedicated emergency medical assistance team on hand to offer support and guidance 24/7 hours a day.
Ireland also readily accepts the EHIC/GHIC card which offers free or discounted medical treatment in the event of an emergency. however, the EHIC/GHIC does not cover all costs and certainly won’t cover the costs to bring you home in an emergency, which is why it is important to have a suitable travel insurance policy in place. remember, if you have any pre-existing medical conditions, it is important that you declare them to your travel insurance provider otherwise you may not be covered for any related medical costs or claims.
