Squaremouth’s Bahamas Travel Insurance Recommendations

Though previously required during the Pandemic, the Bahamas has removed all pre-arrival regulations, to include the need to complete the Bahamas Travel Health Visa. However, for travelers who have specific concerns, Squaremouth recommends a comprehensive travel insurance policy to provide coverage.

Squaremouth recommends a comprehensive travel insurance policy that includes other benefits for the most common travel insurance concerns. Primarily, this includes Trip Cancellation coverage and Medical Evacuation coverage.

Due to the popularity of cruises into and out of the Bahamas, and the potential for higher than usual medical expenses, Squaremouth recommends high medical coverage for travelers visiting the Caribbean destination. For these travelers, Squaremouth recommends a policy with at least $100,000 in Emergency Medical coverage, and at least $250,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage.

Most travel insurance policies are comprehensive, including coverage for travelers main concerns, such as cancellations, medical emergencies, travel delays, and luggage. Travelers with prepaid and non-refundable trip expenses can buy a policy with Trip Cancellation to protect their financial investment in the trip. This benefit can reimburse 100% of their prepaid and non-refundable trip costs if they need to cancel for a covered reason, such as not being able to travel to the Bahamas because they are sick with Covid-19 or another illness. On average, a policy with this coverage will cost between 5% and 10% of the total trip cost.
