USEFUL INFORMATION: Chapka, our travel insurance


October 13, 2021

Getting a good travel insurance is one of the most important aspects when taking a flight or going on holidays. This usually covers any flight cancellations, transport delays, loss of luggage, medical assistance at the destination and even the urgent return home if something serious happens between your relatives.

For a long-term trip like ours, few companies offer any kind of long-term insurance. We, after extensive research and making different comparisons, came to the conclusion that the best insurance we could do is with Chapka.

They have offices in Madrid and a wide variety of insurances that are sure to suit the needs of any traveler. They are very fast, they make it very easy to use insurance when you are traveling, they are very accessible and they have one of the best economic offers on the market.
