– Updated January 2022 –
Since the beginning of 2021, our destinations Malaga and Seville benefit from a regional travel insurance especially designed for Covid-19 circumstances of European travellers. The local regional government Junta de Andalucía announced that during 2021 (and part of 2022) all international visitors coming to the autonomous community of Andalucía (southern Spain), will have a free complementary COVID-19 insurance! The insurance currently covers up till the 30th of June 2022, as it was prolonged from the end of 2021 for another half year in 2022.
Complementary COVID-19 Travel insurance for Tourists
The Junta de Andalucía developed this insurance together with Europ Assistance. It concerns a complementary travel assistance insurance for tourists (non-residents) who travel to the Autonomous region of Andalusia, valid until June 30, 2022. The purpose of the insurance is to provide cover for COVID-19, in addition to the coverage that each individual already has (your own personal insurance will apply first). Furthermore, the insurance only provides coverage in the case of infection with COVID-19 (no other scenarios will be covered). Nevertheless, it means that medical expenses or repatriation related to Covid-19 are included.
Number one requirement is to have an officially recognized establishment with an irrefutable booking* during your stay, which will this way indicate the period of coverage of the insurance.
*This can be a hotel, tourist apartment, guesthouse, or even camp sites and country lodges.
