The number of accumulated coronavirus infections are low in Canary Islands compared to the rest of Europe. Furthermore, the Government has an insurance to cover the related costs to a positive tested person, in collaboration with the national health department.
The document states that tourists visiting any island in the Canary Islands archipelago for a minimum of 1 night and a maximum of 30 days, staying at regulated tourist establishments, who test positive in a PCR test for COVID-19 during their stay, will be considered insured parties, and also their accompanying relatives, even if the latter do not test positive.
- Medical, surgical, pharmaceutical and hospitalisation costs resulting from COVID -19
- Healthcare transport or repatriation of COVID-19 patients or wounded
- Costs of lengthening the insured party’s stay at a hotel (including in the event of quarantine or imposed confinement).
The above is without prejudice to other travel assistance guarantees if the insured party tests positive for COVID-19.
