Travel Insurance for Expats

According to the statistics, there are over 5 million expatriates living in Spain, about 11% of the overall population. British expats currently account for almost 360,000; with many choosing to retire to the country for its warmer southern European climate.

For those expats looking to travel away from Spain however, whether it be back to their original country or elsewhere; travel insurance should be an essential element of planning their trip.

Finding the right travel insurance product can be an issue, however, as most travel insurers will insist upon customers being a resident of the country their trip begins in to qualify for a policy; meaning expatriates need to purchase a policy from a domestic Spanish insurer. An issue complicated further by the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union following Brexit 

For those expatriates with pre-existing medical conditions, the issue is complicated further by the fact that the cover available to them is very limited, with most Spanish travel insurers excluding cover to those with existing medical conditions.
