Andalucia offers Free Health Insurance to International Guests

Updated: Oct 30

Andalucia region (Junta Andalucia) has created a travel insurance policy in collaboration with EuropeAssistance to give peace of mind to international travellers. This policy provides assistance in case of any complications due to Covid that may happen while you are visiting. Including: hospitalisation, prescription drugs, and even repatriation and extended hotel stays due to need to quarantine or other covid related issues. What are you waiting for to enjoy a week in the sunniest corner of Europe! This policy only extends to people staying in a fully accredited and legal short term rental, like our Sunny Corner and Honeymoon Suites! Did your host ask for ID, register you on arrival? Did you have self check-in with a lock box? If your host did not welcome you in person and verify your ID, then send the check-in information to the local authorities, you may not be eligible for this insurance.

And great news for us - as fully accredited and registered Tourist Apartment, if you needed to extend your stay in our apartment due to Covid reasons covered in this policy, you can get compensation from the Andalucia government and Europ Assitance! Waiting out your test results on this terrace, might not be so bad after all... Only fully accredited lodgings will qualify for your insurance, so be sure your holiday rental has a valid VFT permit and that they perform the required police check-in registry, otherwise you will not be covered. Many still do not do this, so be sure to ask. With our places you are sure that your arrival is recorded and all above board.

Need a holiday in the sun, with mediterranean culture and atmosphere, gorgeous beaches, fine dining and tons of outdoor activities? Stay in the privacy of your own apartment, to reduce exposure to the virus. Less common areas means less risk of close contact. Andalucia is a great place to plan your first trip back to Europe in 2021. You will be well insured against any issues by the Andalucia government... perhaps even better security than in your home country! Read about it here:

One of the best things about this policy, that makes so much sense, is that they are covering the cost of an extended hotel stay if you are denied travel because of testing positive or needing to quarantine!


  1. The insured's stay at a hotel following hospitalisation or under medical quarantine prescription is covered.

This is such a great initiative, I hope it will help reassure everyone who wants to discover Andalucia, to do so in 2021!
