The Balearics tourist board is to continue to offer free COVID insurance to all international visitors, including Brits, until the end of the year.

It will mean that families visiting over the October half-term holiday will be covered.

Included in the insurance policy, provided by RACE, are medical expenses up to €15,000, repatriation and the costs of extending a stay in regulated accommodation.

The policy also covers costs of a visit being prolonged due to self-isolation or quarantine because of COVID-19. 

A helpline service in English (+34 900 100 124) for tourists is also available and free of charge.

The Tourism Agency of the Balearic Islands said: “The extension of the policy aims to restore traveller confidence and stimulate demand, especially targeting families during the October half-term.”

The COVID insurance doesn’t replace standard travel insurance as it only covers medical repatriation and quarantine costs due to COVID-19.
