Hi Everyone,

I'm Tanja, moved to Lisbon in June and now have residency through my German passport.  My Canadian husband is still waiting for his residency. I also have dual citizenship with Canada.

Thanks for all the insurance advice on the forum. We have private health insurance for Portugal through Millenium Bank, which covers us for trips outside of Portugal, but for only 35 percent of emergency costs.

This won't work for us, so we need to purchase travel insurance and I'm finding it difficult to find companies who will provide 100 percent emergency travel insurance coverage for worldwide travel (US, Canada, UK, Shengen, Asia...)

Have any of you purchased travel insurance only?  I'm hoping to purchase yearly travel insurance coverage instead of travel insurance on a trip by trip basis, but I will take any advice out there. I'm wondering if it would also be helpful to others if we generated a list of companies that offer this service.

Thanks for your help. It's great to have this community as support.

Tanja

I cannot be sure whether it meets your needs, but Globelink Travel Insurance has a range of policies, onto which you can add an Excess Waiver to reduce the excess to zero.  www.globelink.eu  I have no affiliation with them, but have had policies with them back when travel was a thing 😉 though I never needed to claim.
