Ecuador Travel Insurance
When many travellers think of Ecuador they think of the Galapagos Islands, but there is far more to this vibrant and diverse South American country than its most popular tourist spot. From the vast Amazon rainforest to dormant volcanoes and stunning mountain ranges, Ecuador is a holiday destination that is perfect for adventurers who love the great outdoors, but several health and safety concerns in the country mean that travel insurance is a necessity if you are planning a trip.
The most dangerous part of Ecuador is the exclusion zone on the Colombian border where there is a large amount of terrorist activity, but you are highly unlikely to come anywhere near this area of the country as a tourist. In general, Ecuador is a pretty safe place to visit in terms of crime and political unrest, although it is always important to follow the country’s safety advice to avoid any risk of harm.
Travellers to Ecuador are at a slight risk of being caught in a natural disaster, as the country is on the equator and can experience earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. Whilst these rarely happen, you must ensure that you have appropriate holiday travel insurance that will cover you in the event of an accident. It’s also a good idea to research Ecuador’s evacuation procedures so you will know what to do in an emergency.
As in any country, there is also a risk of theft or pickpocketing when you’re out and about in Ecuador. Most travel insurance policies will cover any items that are lost or stolen, but if you are taking any particularly expensive items or gadgets with you, extra insurance cover is advised to give you peace of mind.
