Yes, you need! To be insuranced abroad is very important. LanguageBookings.com does not provide any travel insurance; however, we strongly recommend you to get an individual health and travel insurance to avoid problems on destination. Thanks to them you will be safe and taken care of in case anything happens.
We strongly advised to all students to take out insurance in case of the need to return home early, medical conditions and other unpredictable circumstances. We recommend you to get your travel insurance in WORLD NOMADS INSURANCE, it is built for adventurous travellers from over 140 countries, with covers for overseas medical, evacuation, baggage and 24 hour emergency support when you need it most.
European students should apply for a free EUROPEAN HEALTH INSURANCE CARD (EHIC), which may give you access to reduced-cost medical treatment if you are travelling within the European Economic Area country (EEA) or elsewhere in the world. Please contact the Department of Health in your country to download an application form. This will cover you for emergency healthcare in the EU until your period of stay starts and after it finishes. The EHIC is free of charge.
