Israel Travel Insurance Requirements

Medical travel insurance is required when visiting Israel specifically with coverage for Covid-19.

Squaremouth’s Israel Travel Insurance Recommendations

Squaremouth recommends all foreign travelers heading to Israel have travel insurance with Emergency Medical and Medical Evacuation benefits that provides coverage for Covid-19.

Squaremouth recommends travelers buy a policy with at least $50,000 in Emergency Medical coverage, and at least $100,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage. Emergency Medical can reimburse travelers for the cost of treatment during their trip, such as hospital fees and physician services. Medical Evacuation can cover the cost of an evacuation to the nearest hospital in the event of an emergency, or travel home under the advisement of a physician.

Many travelers visiting Israel want cancellation coverage for prepaid and non-refundable trip costs. In this case, we recommend a comprehensive policy with Trip Cancellation coverage. This benefit can reimburse 100% of a traveler’s prepaid and non-refundable trip costs if they need to cancel for a covered reason, such as contracting Covid-19 or another illness. Comprehensive policies have other coverage as well, including benefits for travel delays and luggage.
