Travel Insurance To Europe

No continent combines this amount of culture, history, diversity and flavour. From the magical Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Bavarian beer halls of Munich to the wonders of the Adriatic Sea and the Ottoman mosques of Istanbul. If seeing Europe isn't already on your bucket list, add it now!

About Europe

EuropeTo many people travelling to Europe is a rite of passage. Spanning 7 time zones, taking up 8% of the Earth's surface and covering 10,400,000km2 - the whole of Europe could easily fit inside Canada. It brings together over 738,200,000 people and these Europeans divide into over 50 countries that all overlap in culture and history. All these factors make it a crazy place to travel to. If you are lucky enough to head there, you should always take out a travel insurance policy to protect yourself.

Stretching from Asia to the Atlantic, and from Africa to the Arctic, Europe is bound by the physical features that encompass it: the Atlantic Ocean in the West, the Mediterranean Sea in the South, and the Arctic Ocean in the North. In the east there is no obvious boundary but traditionally the Ural Mountains and the River Ural are the eastern border of the continent. The physical boundaries of Europe also meet up loosely with the cultural influences - language, the Ancient Romans and The Greeks, religion - especially Christianity, alliances and the many conflicts that have sometimes torn the continent apart.

The joy of Europe is that you can travel a mere few hours and wind up in a whole new world, with a new culture, language and way of being. First time Europe visitors mostly head to the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. Those heading back for more are encouraged to explore Scandinavia, Poland, Portugal or Greece and head out to Eastern Europe as far as Turkey for a unique cultural adventure.
