Malta travel insurance
situated in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, the island nation of Malta attracts over 2 million visitors a year^ with its natural beauty, vibrant culture and welcoming residents. what makes Malta so special is its remarkable history that dates back to 5200 B.C. during your stay, why not visit the UNESCO-listed megalithic temples which are some of the world’s oldest free-standing structures, allowing you to really experience remains of an ancient civilisation? you may even be interested in visiting the renowned St John’s Cathedral in Valletta which displays the famous Caravaggio’s painting ‘the beheading of Saint John the Baptist’?
one appealing aspect of Malta is that it is an archipelago and has two sister islands, Comino and Gozo, that are just a short ferry ride to visit. Comino is a quieter island but is famous for its blue lagoon. whereas Gozo is the second largest of the three islands and is a great visit for those looking for a more ‘relaxing’ experience. wherever you decide to go during your trip to Malta, it is important that you get travel insurance from the date that you book your trip so that you can enjoy your holiday with a peace of mind.

does travel insurance cover medical assistance in Malta?

Malta falls under one of the countries that readily accepts the GHIC/EHIC card meaning you may be able to use this for emergency treatment abroad. in most cases, the EHIC/GHIC will offer discounted or even free medical treatment, however it will not cover repatriation expenses (which can be pretty costly in some cases), which is why it is important that you get suitable travel insurance that will cover these costs in a medical emergency. what’s more, you’ll be pleased to know that all policies on the albert & eddie panel also come with access to a 24/7 emergency medical assistance team, so should you need help or guidance, our dedicated team are there for you all day, every day.
