Travel health insurance for the Schengen Visa

schengen visa insurance
We get thousands of customers each year asking about health insurance to satisfy Schengen visa requirements. The Schengen visa allows travelers to travel between and among various European countries and kingdoms. It has made travel within Europe easier since each country does not require their own visa (with their own requirements). However, one of the requirements for issuing this Schengen visa is to have appropriate travel health insurance during ones stay in Europe. The really good news is that this insurance is very economical and easy to purchase. On our site, we have a special search engine which compares only the policies that satisfy visa requirements. On purchasing the insurance, you can immediately get the properly formatted visa letter to provide to the consulate as part of your visa application.

There are several policies from three companies we recommend. The plans are very compatible, but do vary in price by age. There are four companies we recommend, either: TokioMarine HCC (Atlas International), International Medical Group (IMG) (Patriot America or Patriot Platinum), Seven Corners (Liaison Travel Economy, Liaison Travel Elite and Liaison Travel Choice), and Trawick International (Safe Travels International) . The choices vary slightly by age and length of stay. The Schengen visa letters for these four companies take no longer than 30 minutes to download and print out. Even though you print out your own copy of the letter, it is still considered an official document.

Seven Corners makes it very easy to get the visa letter. Immediately after your purchase, you will get a confirmation email and linked within that email is a hotlink to the Visa Letter which you can click on and print out for yourself. With HCCMIS, you also get a confirmation email with an attached PDF document. Within that PDF document, there are instructions to go to their "TokioMarine HCC Client Zone" in order to print out the visa letter. A nice thing about this company is that you also can print out the letter in Spanish if it is needed (I hear the Spanish consulate can be very picky). Finally, the Patriot plans also have a hotlink in the confirmation email which will take you to IMG client zone automatically and you can email or print out your visa letter, ID cards, etc there. For Trawick International a visa letter is provided at the time of enrollment which can be used to obtain a Schengen Visa.

For residents of Maryland, the only plans which can be used are the Trawick International Insurance Plans. You do not have to insure the value of your trip (you can choose $0). This company does not immediately produce a visa letter. You will need to contact us so we can request it, so it will take at least one business day to get this emailed to you.

The companies that we work with have made the process of getting the right insurance for your trip very easy and painless. In fact, you do not need to be a US citizen or resident to purchase these policies. You are able to pay with a credit card via internet from wherever you are. We do sell many policies to persons from Latin America that are traveling only to Europe. Take advantage of the great rates and the convenience of our online services as well as our friendly agents! We can help you get what you need so you can enjoy your vacation!

As ever, we wish you safe and happy travels!
