Festival capital of Europe
If you’re planning a trip to Spain, you might be heading to San Sebastian for a hit of sun and surf, Valencia to tour the tapas scene and marvel at ancient architecture, or to the historic Bilbao Mercado de la Ribera marketplace, Europe’s largest indoor market. No matter where you’re headed, before you pack your bags you may want to consider travel insurance. If disaster strikes while you’re overseas, travel insurance may just save the day - or the fiesta.
With World Nomads you can buy travel insurance as soon as your trip is locked in or when you’re already enjoying your trip around Spain (waiting periods apply), it’s entirely up to you.
World Nomads offers two plans – Standard and Explorer – each provides different levels of coverage depending on your Country of Residence and what level of cover you need. Here are some of the highlights of our cover:
Travel insurance could help just in case you land in Barcelona, but your baggage doesn’t, you suffer a travel delay, you or your travel buddy catches COVID-19, or you need to be medically evacuated. Depending on your Country of Residence and the level of cover you have chosen, our policies may cover you for:
As fun and fascinating as Spain can be there are some things you should be aware of, such as:
Wandering around the streets of Madrid, Barcelona, and Seville can be a wonderful experience, but you need to remain vigilant and keep your valuables in sight. Watch out for bag snatching, pickpockets, and theft from cars. We offer cover if you're after travel insurance for your tech gear and other high value items. To upgrade the cover for high value items, list them on your policy and pay the additional premium. Make sure you have copies of all key documents you’re traveling with — passport, ID, travel insurance, receipts, vouchers, addresses, transportation tickets, etc.
Coronavirus remains a risk in all regions of Spain. If you're in Spain and you have symptoms or have been in contact with someone who does, call 112. You can always get in touch with our 24-hour Emergency Assistance Team. Make sure you’ve checked our Coronavirus cover article and also our travel alerts page before you go.
Spain experiences earthquakes, severe storms, and forest fires. Always do your research for updates. On 19 September 2021 there was a volcanic eruption on the island of La Palma, in the Canary Islands. Due to the eruption, flights and travel plans were sent into disarray for people traveling to and from the Canary Islands. While we do offer cover for natural disasters, for those policies that do cover natural disasters in one way or another, you'll need to have bought a policy before the natural disaster event is known and do everything you can to minimize your expenses. Check your policy carefully as benefit limits apply and vary between plans.
When going to party hotspots and festivals in Spain it’s important to be aware of your surroundings, especially if you're traveling solo and don’t know the language. We suggest not to overdo it when it comes to drinking and be careful of accepting drinks from strangers especially at big events. Remember that while we do offer cover for overseas travel accidents such as, hospitalization, day surgery and out-patient treatment, and prescribed medicines, you won’t be covered if you’re on drugs or have been drinking alcohol excessively or if you’ve been acting illegally.
Here are some of the things we do not provide cover for:
Yes! When in Europe, it’s very important to have a valid passport and a Schengen visa if you’re not a European citizen as this will help you move freely around the 27 EU member states. If you’re traveling to Spain on a short trip, you will likely need to apply for a Schengen short-stay visa for Spain. Consult the Schengen Visa website for more details.
Entry to Spain no longer requires proof of COVID-19 vaccination. For full details on entry requirements for your Country of Residence, consult your country’s travel advisory.
We don’t cover any sport or activity that’s not listed in your policy wording. If you’re unsure, it’s best to consult your policy and policy wording. If you’re still not sure, get in touch, and we can help answer your questions.
