Travel insurance generally covers for loss of luggage, cancelled or delayed flights and medical emergencies while in Egypt. Families, frequent travellers, corporate business houses, students and all others can apply for travel insurance.
The most essential aspect of travel insurance is Medical or Health Insurance, which assures reimbursement of expenditure during medical emergency on the trip. Accident Insurance is more or less similar to Health Insurance, but it additionally covers the risks of accident during the vacation. Availability of this insurance is most important for tourists who indulge in hiking and trekking. Adventure sports like jet skiing and water sports can also be covered under this insurance.
In chances of cancellation of vacation, flight cancellations and even delayed flights, one can avail Trip Cancellation Insurance for getting back the cash. Travel insurance can also be exercised in times of loss or damage of luggage.
Depending upon the purpose of travel, each type of travel insurance is available for a period of 5 to 365 days. Tourists who suddenly plan their trips or take on a last minute policy can also benefit from the emergency insurance, called Instant Insurance.
Several companies across the world provide travel insurance for travelling to Egypt. One can fill the travel insurance application form, either online or in person. Travel insurance can be claimed within the suggested time period, usually 28 to 31 days after return. At the time of claim, individuals are required to submit a written notification from airlines, hospital, police or respective authorities.

2. Alexandria - time needed and things to see?
3. Cairo - how long does the Museum take if properly seen and how interesting is the Citadel and how long does it take to
4. Is it true that all bus/car excursions - say from Cairo to Alexandria or Cairo to Red Sea Resort towns or Aswan to Abu
Simbel- are escorted in groups by police/security force?
