What is expat travel insurance?

Expat travel insurance is a policy aimed at expatriates residing within the European Union. EU resident aged up 89 years and their dependents are eligible for a policy. If you live abroad, you know what a pain it is to find good, reasonably priced travel insurance products. Well, that's changed now, and there's no need to look further.

Globelink have designed a quality travel insurance policy and you will get your travel insurance documents and Emergency Assistance Card immediately after purchase via email. The policy is in English and the premiums do not depend on the country you live in, the pricing is the same wherever you are based in the EU. Formal residential documents are not necessary to obtain expatriate travel insurance from Globelink International. 

This insurance is only available to persons who are currently legally resident in the European Union or European Economic Area (EEA) and registered with a medical practitioner or entitled to free public healthcare under reciprocal arrangements currently in place in the European Union or EEA.

The cheapest single trip policy is £ based on 1 adult aged up to 50 travelling in Europe (for up to 5 days).
