Reasons to get your Italian Travel Insurance

Medical Emergencies

While Italy offers quality healthcare services, medical expenses can be substantial for travelers without insurance. Travel insurance can cover medical treatments, doctor visits, hospital stays, and prescription medications, ensuring you receive proper care without incurring high out-of-pocket costs.

Delayed or Cancelled Flights:

Italy is a popular tourist destination, and airports can experience delays and cancellations due to various reasons, including strikes, weather, and technical issues. Travel insurance can provide compensation for additional accommodation, meals, and transportation expenses if your flight is delayed or cancelled.

Theft and Loss of Belongings

Italy's bustling tourist areas can sometimes be targets for pickpocketing and theft. Travel insurance can help reimburse you for lost, stolen, or damaged belongings, including valuable items like passports, cameras, and electronics, allowing you to replace essential items without incurring extra expenses.

Natural Disasters and Weather Events:

Italy can experience unpredictable weather patterns and natural disasters such as storms, flooding, or extreme winter conditions. Travel insurance can provide coverage for trip disruptions or cancellations caused by these events, ensuring you're financially protected if your travel plans are affected.

Main Facts About Italy

In Italy, like in most European countries, the euro is used. You can also use the popular credit cards like Visa, Maestro, Amex and Master Card.
Italians speak Italian. In popular tourist destinations English is used as well, but the most of the locals either don't understand it or their ability to speak English is very limited.
Summer months are really hot in Italy. Starting from May, the temperature usually reaches 25-29 degrees, while in winter it is around 10-12 degrees celsius. It is very unlikely for it to rain in summer, but colder months see rain quite often.
Power Plugs
In Italy the power plugs and sockets are of type C, F and L (like most of Europe), therefore you won't be able to connect appliances bought in the UK or USA there. We suggest buying a travel adaptor and use our appliances anywhere in Italy.
There currently are 60.3 million people living in Italy. It also is a super popular tourist destination for anyone in the world, therefore expect most places to be pretty crowded!
Fun Fact
Tourists throw €1,000,000 into the Trevi Fountain each year. All the money is donated to charity, though, so next time you are in Rome, make sure you make a wish and throw some coins into the fountain.
