Is Egypt in Europe for Travel insurance?

Although Egypt is in Africa, the risk associated with travelling to certain areas of Egypt, such as Sharm El Sheikh, is not greater than travelling to most European countries. However, this is only applicable to certain limited areas in Egypt, other locations in Egypt represent a higher risk and are more dangerous than others, due to criminal activity and sustained terrorist attacks.

For example, as of 17th April 2019, the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advise ‘against all travel‘ to the Governorate of North Sinai due to the increased risk of terrorism. They also advise ‘against all but essential travel‘ to some areas west of the Nile Valley and Nile Delta.

These travel advisories can change from day to day, so Click here to see the latest FCDO travel advice for Egypt.

Therefore, it is extremely important that travellers going to this area buy Egypt Travel Insurance with sufficient cover for trips to certain areas of Egypt. This is because many 'standard' travel insurance policies are likely to exclude travel to the areas mentioned above and other areas, where the FCDO has advised against ‘all travel‘ or ‘all but essential travel‘.

This is where High Risk Voyager Travel Insurance is here for you, as our policy is different from most travel insurance policies. Our High Risk Voyager Travel Insurance provides cover to the destinations in Egypt where the FCDO advises against travel.

Why do I need Travel Insurance to Egypt?

In addition to the increased risk of crime and terrorism, Egypt also has no reciprocal healthcare agreement with the UK or the European Union. This means that you will not be able to use your EHIC or GHIC in case of a medical emergency whilst visiting Egypt.

So, if you do not have the appropriate travel insurance to cover your trip to Egypt, consequently, you will be required to pay any costs associated with the medical treatment you receive, from mild sunstroke to more serious medical issues.

What is Covered on your Egypt Travel Insurance Policy?

High Risk Voyager Travel insurance for travel to Egypt has been specifically designed to offer extensive travel protection whilst visiting or working in ‘high risk’ territorial zones in Egypt. As well as being able to offer protection, if you choose, in the event of missed departure, baggage damage and sporting activities, our other policy benefits include:
