Medical travel insurance is recommended for all foreign visitors traveling to Mauritius, although it is no longer required. During the Covid-19 pandemic, all travelers visiting the country were required to purchase a policy with coverage for Covid-19 related expenses. While it is no longer mandatory, it is still recommended by the local government. Squaremouth recommends comprehensive insurance with medical, cancellation, and travel delay benefits.
Emergency Medical coverage can cover hospital stays and medical treatment for an unforeseen illness or injury that occurs during a trip, including Covid-19. Squaremouth recommends at least $50,000 in Emergency Medical coverage to satisfy Mauritius’ requirements. That is consistent with Squaremouth’s recommendation for international destinations.
Travelers should also consider at least $100,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage. The Medical Evacuation benefit can help transport you to a medical facility or even home if a doctor requires it in the event of an unforeseen injury or illness.
Most travelers have significant travel expenses when visiting Mauritius. For those who want to protect their investment from unforeseen illness or injury, inclement weather, or terrorism before and during the trip, Squaremouth recommends Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption coverage.
The Trip Cancellation benefit can reimburse travelers up to 100% of their covered trip costs if a traveler cancels their trip before they leave for a covered reason. Trip Interruption is similar but is a post-departure benefit that can cover 100%-200% of the covered trip costs if a person interrupts their trip for a covered reason.
The most common concern for travelers is having to quarantine at their destination. Squaremouth recommends the Trip Delay benefit, which can reimburse a daily amount if a person’s trip is delayed because of unforeseen illness or injury, including testing positive for Covid-19. This benefit can also help reimburse costs associated with changing a return flight home.
