Travel Safety

Travel Insurance


Travel Safety in a foreign country such as Portugal is an important step that you do not want to take for granted. The last thing you want to do in the middle of your trip is figure out how to deal with issues or problems and whom to get help from! By taking a few steps, you can remove the what if, how and who from the back of your mind and focus on a great experience.


Although Portugal is one of the most safest and friendly countries from our experience at aguide2portugal, we recommend the following information be considered.


Travel Tips from World Nomads

Here are a few things to consider when choosing your insurance to make sure that you will be covered on your adventure:


  • Cancellation: It's no fun if you fall ill before you leave and can not go on your trip. To claim though, you have to buy your insurance policy when you buy your trip. Not all insurance policies cover cancellation, so please read the policy wording relevant to you carefully
  • Lost or Stolen Gear: most travel insurance policies have a per-item value limit – make sure its high enough to cover your gear or choose a policy that allows you to increase the limit.
  • Medical expenses over and above evacuation: check that your cover includes emergency treatment while away and transport to bring you home – remembering that insurance providers will usually insist on getting you home as soon as you are fit enough to travel.
  • Adventurous Activities: look carefully at what your policy covers - you may find that you are not covered to do all of the adventurous activities that you are planning while you're away.
  • Personal Liability: Accidents happen. If it's found to be your fault and someone decides to sue you, you want to be covered.
