Travel insurance for Colombia

Colombia's modern cities, Caribbean beaches and Amazon forests make it a number one worldwide destination on the list of most travellers. With Holiday Extras holiday insurance you can select a policy that provides the amount of cover that you require, and that helps to protect you from declared medical conditions, and unforeseen medical expenses - an essential, given the tropical climate.

Choose Holiday Extras for Colombia travel insurance

With Holiday Extras you don't have to settle for an inflexible policy - there's three different cover levels to choose from:

Advice for travelling to Colombia

Entry - British nationals can enter Colombia for 90 days for tourism purposes without a visa. You will receive an entry stamp in your passport upon arrival.

Medical - Holiday Extras travel insurance provides cover for pre-existing medical conditions, so check with your GP for any conditions prior to leaving and ensure that you declare these to us. Certain immunisations are recommended, like Yellow Fever and Typhoid. Our medical cover does not cover for illnesses if the correct immunisations were not administered.

Safety - Tourist security in Colombia has improved hugely in recent years, but it is still advisable to keep your belongings close to hand, particularly in busy city areas.
