Travel Insurance Prague

With over a millennia of history to its name, Prague sits as the capital city of the Czech Republic and is widely known as the "city of one hundred spires".

After London, Paris and Rome, Prague is the fourth most visited city in Europe. For a culturally enriching experience from the former centre of Bohemia you'd be a fool for not venturing to this iconic city in eastern Europe. Or, if you're there to sample its world-famous Czech beer then in our eyes that's a perfectly valid reason too!


Choosing the right policy for you

Like with all European cities, it is still important to take out a travel insurance policy to cover you and to safeguard your holiday in case something happens along the way. While no one wants to be in the position where you have to claim on your policy, it gives you that added peace of mind to know that you have that safety net should you need to use it.

Make sure your Czech city break is protected with a comprehensive and trustworthy insurance policy. Depending on the total cost of your holiday plus the nature of your trip, you can get a great single-trip plan from *
