Health insurance coverage abroad
One of the most widespread fears among people when they're planning a trip is taking out an insurance that offers assistance abroad.
To give yourself peace of mind regarding medical concerns and even more so if your destination is outside the European Union, it is advisable to take out medical insurance with assistance abroad or, if you already have one, find out how much you are covered for when travelling abroad.
At DKV, customers with a health policy have travel assistance abroad when staying for less than 180 days. If you need medical assistance abroad, you must call + 34 91 379 04 34 (24 hours), which appears on the back of your DKV health card, so that they can tell you which centres or hospitals to go according to where you are.

Our customers' opinions
The experience of having travel assistance abroad
Fortunately, I have not needed medical care abroad for anything serious, but I had to contact DKV on my trip to Costa Rica due to a severe gastric problem, and I was sent to the nearest health centre so that they could prescribe a stomach protector. The treatment was superb.
