Checking insurance quotes…

Before You Go

Health Insurance

We strongly recommend that all travellers take out a travel insurance policy before travelling. Make sure the policy covers ambulances and an emergency flight home.

In Norway, EU citizens may be required to pay a service fee for emergency medical treatment, but presentation of an E111 form will certainly expedite matters and minimise the amount of paperwork involved. All other nationalities will be required to pay in full upfront.

Recommended Vaccinations

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that all travellers should be covered for diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps, rubella and polio, regardless of their destination.
