Anyone traveling to Portugal can buy nationally sponsored travel insurance that includes coverage, with restrictions, for full medical care, emergency medical evacuation and repatriation as well as, unlike most insurers’ policies, coverage when a trip provider cancels or interrupts a trip because of COVID-19. (A traveler canceling or interrupting his own trip due to fears of COVID-19 will not be covered.)

The insurance provides coverage only on mainland Portugal and in the Madeira and Azores archipelagos. It will not cover expenses abroad even if an injury or illness occurred within Portugal.

It can be purchased at www.portugaltravelinsurance.com or by calling +351 915 555 944. The cost is 37.20 (near $44) for up to 10 days of coverage, 43.20 for 10-15 days, 48.20 for 16-30 or 65.20 for 30-60.
