Planning to take advantage of the Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTL) to jet off? Given that travel has changed entirely since the last time most of us took a holiday pre-pandemic, buying travel insurance has never been more important.

But here's some good news if you’re travelling to Spain, which is among the countries that Singapore has established a VTL with. 

Authorities in some parts of Spain are offering tourists free travel insurance that comes with Covid-19 coverage, in the event that travellers test positive during their holiday. Yup, people travelling to Andalusia, Canary Islands, Region of Murcia, Balearic Islands or Galicia will be covered by free travel insurance with Covid-19 coverage.

In general, the Covid-19 insurance coverage includes medical and hospitalisation expenses, transportation and repatriation costs and expenses during quarantine.

Travellers must stay in regulated tourist establishments in order to qualify for free travel insurance. These include hotels, hotel apartments, guest houses and hostels.

The complimentary Covid-19 insurance policies have conditions that vary slightly from region to region. We take a closer look at what’s covered under Spain’s free travel insurance for tourists. 

And just because there’s free insurance coverage doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy your own too, okay? Find a policy that best suits your needs and covers you should you test positive for Covid-19 while you’re overseas.
