Balearic Islands to extend free Covid insurance deal for UK holidaymakers

Tourism bosses in the holiday hotspots of Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza are extending a free Covid insurance offer in a bid to reassure visitors that it’s safe to visit.

The Tourism Agency of the Balearic Islands (AETIB) has confirmed that its free Covid-19 insurance to all international visitors for stays at any regulated accommodation, will be extended until the year of December.

The extension of the policy aims to restore traveller confidence and stimulate demand, especially targeting families during the October half-term.

Traditional destinations Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera make up the Balearic Islands, which is one of the most popular holiday regions for UK visitors.

The deal covers medical, surgical and hospitalisation expenses with a maximum limit of €15,000, medical expenses for transportation and repatriation, as well as the costs of extending a stay in regulated accommodation for the policyholder and their companions .

It also pledges to pay costs resulting from the policyholder’s stay being prolonged due to self-isolation or quarantine because of Covid-19. A helpline service in English (+34 900 100 124) for tourists is also available and free of charge.

During the Autumn months, the Balearic Islands continue to offer warm temperatures which are ideal for hiking, cycling and outdoor exploration, as well as excellent gastronomy, authentic villages and beautiful landscapes.
