To be safe in your stay in Spain is important for us to remind you that you need to have valid insurance for Spain. You have several options:
If you are resident in the EU you can extend your medical insurance asking to the competent institutions for the European health card. If you have private insurance you can ask them if you are covered in Spain and if not you can extend it.
If you are not resident in the EU you do need private health insurance to cover any eventuality you might have during your stay in Spain.
We recommend you this insurance administrated by Guard.me.
In order to Study abroad or complete an internship abroad, you are required a sufficient insurance cover. PROYECTO ESPAÑOL offers an insurance package that is recognised and accepted by most of the Consulates around the world, although we ask you to double-check it when setting the appointment with the Consulate.
You may already be insured through your family. Please check with your parents to see if the insurance is adequate.
The Outbound Insurance can be booked as one of three different packages and includes the following services:
- Health Insurance
- Public Liability, Accident and Baggage Insurance
Both insurance packages can be booked together for merely € 12,00 a week.
Information about the insurance cover:
Travel Health Insurance:
As you will be abroad for an extended period of time it is extremely important that you have adequate insurance cover. A change of climate, unfamiliar food or an accident can all mean a trip to the doctor. With travel insurance, you can be treated as a private patient. This is very important as most public health insurance doesn’t have sufficient cover. We recommend that all interns (even within Europe) book this Travel Insurance. It can be booked for stays up to a year and offers exceptional value for money.
If damages are made they must be paid for. A little lapse of concentration, unfortunate circumstances and the damage may already be in the millions.
Accident insurance provides financial assistance for disability caused by an accident. The statutory provision is not adequate. With this insurance, you are covered anywhere in the world anytime.
*Please note none of the insurances is refundable when paid. Starting date can be delayed if advising the insurance company prior to the starting date at least 2 weeks.
If you have any question, we will be glad to help you. Please write us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
