Why buy travel insurance to Europe

Travel Insurance to Europe primarily covers unexpected expenses from hospitalization, out-patient treatment, medical evacuation and repatriation of mortal remains. European governments do not want to bear the costs of treating an injured or sick tourist visiting Europe hence they mandate travel insurance to Europe. Healthcare in many European countries is provided by their government for the nations’ citizens and they certainly do not want foreigners increasing the governments’ healthcare bills. Europe Travel Insurance is very affordable and can be easily purchased online.
