Expat Insurance in English for the Costa del Sol 

The Costa del Sol or the Coast of the Sun, is in the region of Andalucia in the Southern part of Spain and as the name suggests it is a region of Coastal towns. There are over a hundred towns and villages where thousands of tourists flock every year for the sea, sunshine and celebrations of summer. It is a popular Expat community, and many have chosen to reside here permanently either to work, retire or just have a holiday home which they can return to several times a year. 

Many residents rent their private properties to holiday makers to gain additional income during the hot summer months. With the hustle and bustle of Malaga, many Expats that live here, tend to travel back to their home countries to get away from it all. 

With so many Expats living in the area there is a lot of things to do all year round. Popular restaurants and bars, music, arts and crafts, landscapes, biking tours, fabulous beaches and a rich cultural heritage exists, so there is something for every traveller to this lovely province. 

In this day and age, it is essential, if you are a visitor or tourist to the region, to make sure you have the right travel insurance. Do read the terms and conditions and check what you are actually buying as some policies offer very little in the way of cover. 

Health Insurance Costa Del Sol.

Private Healthcare insurance  can be very expensive and unless you have a suitable and valid EHIC card you may not gain entry to the Spanish National Health System.

Please don’t assume they will take care of you if you have an accident or injury. You will have to pay if you need to see any private practitioner or Doctor. The same applies to any dental treatment you need. Bear in mind that the EHIC card only covers the basic minor treatments necessary to “patch you up” until you can get back to your home country. 

Emergency Call out Numbers in Spain.

If you need to call an ambulance, you will be charged and if you can’t show your EHIC card or Private health insurance card, and you will have to claim it back if you can. Brexit hasn’t happened yet (as of January 2020) so things may change.
