Insurance is not only a mandatory document for traveling between countries, but also a guarantee of safety and confidence of tourists while traveling. In this case, insurance not only helps to guarantee medical care outside of your home country, but also helps in other common situations, such as losing luggage at the airport or migration problems due to the loss of documents while crossing the border. How much does insurance cost in 2024 and what does it cover - we will tell you further in the article.


Read this article to learn how to choose the right insurance policy for traveling abroad.


What does travel insurance cover for traveling abroad and what is the price?


Travel insurance coverage is broader than just covering medical expenses outside your home country. Thus, a travel insurance policy covers


– diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19 (as prescribed by a doctor and if indicated)

– emergency outpatient and inpatient care (in a medical facility or by a licensed doctor)

– expenses for calling an ambulance and providing ambulance services;

– emergency obstetric care (up to the 28th week of pregnancy);

– expenses for emergency surgeries (including medicines, bandages, etc.);

– expenses for evacuation of children under the age of 14 in case of accident or sudden illness of an adult insured person who was abroad with a child;

– medical transportation and repatriation of the body.


The cost of travel insurance will depend on the chosen validity period. On the Visit Ukraine portal, you can take out an insurance policy at a favorable price: the cost of insurance for 1 day for an adult will cost 2.15 EUR (~91 UAH)

You can apply for travel insurance, which is valid all over the world (except for the territory of the russian federation and Belarus), by following this link.
