GOOD THINGS TO KNOW

Cuba travel insurance: do I need it? In case of illness or accident, what are my options?

There are hospitals and clinics in almost all cities and towns in Cuba. If you seek assistance they will ask you to show either a card or paper stating you have medical coverage. They will want to see an "800" number for coverage verification. This is all that is required. You may purchase travel and medical coverage from various U.S. companies, such as AIG, Allianz (our preference), Travelsafe and many more. You should also ask your airline carrier if such insurance is included with your ticket price as many are now offering
