Brits are confused about travel insurance, can't obtain the definitive list of providers
British travelers arriving in Cuba on Saturday (May 1) and thereafter will be required to carry travel insurance, "but confusion reigns over exactly which policies are valid," the newspaper The Guardian says.
"Anyone entering Cuba from this weekend will be expected to present a copy of their insurance documents on arrival, showing that they have a policy in place which covers the full duration of the trip and includes medical evacuation by air," the newspaper says.
However, "confusion exists because the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs had originally said it would require travelers to have policies from a select list of providers but, since then, British insurance and travel companies have struggled to get a definitive list from the ministry."
The cover is likely to be less comprehensive than many U.K.-bought policies and could work out more expensive.
