Whether you fancy a city break filled with romance in Paris, a visit to the beautiful beaches of the Canary Islands or you want to witness the majestic beauty of the Northern Lights, Europe has a destination for almost every type of holiday.

While holidays to France are all about culture and great food, trips to Iceland allow you to see Europe’s wilderness and wildlife at its beautiful best. Alternatively, you can take a trip as far away as Russia, and learn more about the country’s history or be mesmerised by the beauty of Red Square. If you’d rather shop until you drop, try Milan’s gorgeous designer boutiques.

With so much choice, it can be hard to pick just one destination, which is why interrailing has become so popular. You can leave with your backpack and explore everything this beautiful continent has to offer on one trip. If you’re taking an extended break in Europe, then our Backpacker insurance could be a good fit.

Below is some more information about our insurance products, for which Terms and Conditions apply. Please visit the policy information hub for full details.

You may think that travel insurance isn’t as important when you’re staying closer to home, but the truth is, things can still go wrong.

For example, your flight might be cancelled, your luggage may be lost, or your valuables could be stolen by pickpockets at busy tourist attractions. Thankfully, travel insurance for Europe can help protect you against these risks and more. Accidents can happen wherever you are but, with European travel insurance, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you’re protected if something doesn’t go to plan. 

We offer three types of holiday insurance for Europe: Single Trip, Annual and Backpacker.

Our Single Trip travel insurance for Europe covers you for a maximum of 180 days at any one time. But, if you’re planning on going away more than once this year, then our Annual travel insurance for Europe may be a better fit. It covers you for an unlimited number of trips, up to 31 days in duration over a 12-month period. Alternatively, if you’re aged 50 or under and you’re travelling across Europe to a number of destinations as part of a career break or a gap year, then you could find that our Backpacker insurance is a better option.  

Across our Single Trip and Annual policies, we also offer three different levels of cover: Bronze, Silver and Gold. These have different payment limits and excess amounts.

With our travel insurance for Europe, you can be protected against: 

  • Cancelling or curtailing your trip
  • Emergency medical and associated expenses
  • Loss of passport*
  • Delayed personal possessions
  • Lost, stolen or damaged personal possessions*
  • Loss of personal money*
  • Personal accident cover
  • Missed departures

  • Personal liability
  • Legal expenses
  • End-supplier failure**
  • *Not available with Bronze level cover
  • **Only available with Gold level cover

If you have any activities planned, you can also choose to purchase additional cover. If you’re planning on skiing in the picturesque Val-d'Isère, then our Winter Sports and Ski add-on can protect you against things like piste closure and lost ski equipment. 

To understand exactly what you're covered for and to find out whether any exclusions apply, please read your policy documents. If you have any questions about your policy, please get in touch with us.

Planning on taking more than one European trip this year? Then our Annual travel insurance for Europe could be right for you. You can take an unlimited number of trips across Europe throughout the year.
Just taking the one holiday to Europe this year? Our Single Trip travel insurance for Europe can protect you. From Milan to Moscow, we’ve got you covered.
Backpacking is a great way to fuel your sense of adventure and discovery. If you’re considering backpacking – whether in Europe or across the globe – as part of a gap year or career break, then our Backpacker travel insurance could be the perfect fit.
Whether you’re taking a beach break in France, heading away to learn more about Rome’s history or taking the kids to Disneyland Paris, you can put the whole family on the same policy.
While we can still cover you under the standard sections of our travel insurance policy while on a cruise holiday, we will not be able to offer the additional cover provided by the Cruise travel optional extra section. This is only a temporary measure while we make improvements to the booking engine of our website. Please keep an eye on the Allianz Assistance website in the future so you are aware when we are able to offer this additional cover again.
Holidays are the perfect time to get the adrenaline pumping, and our Winter Sports and Ski insurance can help you hit the pistes with confidence.
Many sports and leisure activities are covered on our standard travel insurance policies at no additional premium. From 5th May 2021, we will not be able to provide cover while you take part in riskier sports and leisure activities like kite surfing and rugby. This is only a temporary measure while we make improvements to our website. Please keep an eye on the Allianz Assistance website in the future so you are aware when we are able to offer this additional cover again.
