Chapka travel Insurance

What kind of travel insurance should you choose for a trip to the USA?


Whether you go to North America for a holiday or to study, travel insurance is essential. Indeed, medical expenses in the USA and Canada are nothing like what you know in France. A day in hospital can cost you $10,000. It’s a risk not to be taken lightly and you must absolutely choose the best cover.

Chapka, specialist in travel insurance for more than twelve years offers you a tailor made cover to suits all your needs. Most of our policies include a cover specific to the USA and Canada.

For this destination, we have implemented a medical expenses cover in the amount of €500,000 minimum. That may seem like a lot, but as an expert on the matter, we greatly recommend a €500,000 minimum cover for medical expenses for your trips to North America.


The ESTA, an essential document for travelling to the United States


Travellers going to the United States as tourists for less than 90 days or for a connecting flight must obtain the ESTA, an electronic travel authorisation. For more information, see our blog. Holders of student or work visas are exempt.



What kind of health insurance should you choose for a holiday in the USA?


Our health insurance for travel to the USA includes specific cover. For this destination, we have implemented a much higher level of cover for medical fees. This may seem like a lot to you, but as a specialist in this field, we strongly recommend a high limit for medical fees.
