Albania does not belong to the European Economic Community, so the European Health Insurance Card has no validity or effect. The Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs recommends the purchase of travel insurance to Albania .
Insurance for medical care
The country’s public facilities have poor infrastructure and services compared to the standard in Spain and other Eurozone countries. This is why it is advisable to have a travel insurance with medical care coverage , which will allow you to opt for private clinics and expedite care and treatment.
Insurance with covid-19 coverage can solve problems with medical care or stay in quarantine. If you go to public or private hospitals without medical insurance coverage, the costs incurred are borne by the person being treated
Many travellers come to Albania for sporting activities or trekking in the mountainous hinterland. A good coverage of this type of experience avoids rescue costs.
The travel insurance can also cover traffic accidents with the rental car. Driving in Albania and the roads – especially those in mountainous areas which are winding – can involve mishaps, so insurance with accident cover will save you a lot of headaches.
Not all roads in Albania are like this, but insurance never hurts.
