Travel Insurance

Taking out travel insurance can help cover emergencies whilst you are way. It can be very inexpensive and is worth while having.

Travel insurance usually covers everything from lost documents, money and travel delays, and also legal cover if you get into any trouble.

DO ensure that your travel insurance doesn't consider motorcycling as a dangerous pursuit. Check the details and make sure that you are covered for recreational motorcycling.

Medical Cover / Health Insurance

Many travel insurance policies include Medical Cover. Please check in advance as policies can vary greatly.

We recommend taking out a policy with Medical Cover, this can usually cover you for any costs that your EIHC will not pay out for. It will also usually pay for you to come back to the UK, for various reasons including if you need treatment in the UK or if you are unable to ride through injury.

Even though your EIHC will cover most services that you would get under the NHS, some ambulance services in Europe are privately operated and you would be expected to pay for ambulance travel in those circumstances.

In Europe you will need private health insurance if visiting a non EEA country. Below is a list of countries where an EIHC is accepted.

Austria
Belgium
Cyprus (but not Northern Cyprus)
Czech Republic
Denmark
Estonia
Finland
France
Germany
Greece
Hungary
Iceland
Ireland
Italy
Latvia
Liechtenstein
Lithuania
Luxembourg
Malta Netherlands
Norway
Poland
Portugal
Slovakia
Slovenia
Spain
Sweden
Switzerland

If you are travelling to any other country or do not have an EIHC, then you will need private medical insurance.
