Insurance in Spain
When living in Spain it is important to find out which insurances are mandatory and what extra coverage you need to protect your lifestyle, yourself and your loved ones.
In Spain it can be difficult to identify which insurance policy is best for you especially with the added difficulty of tackling the paperwork to get Spanish insurance which can be a challenge for long-term residents and newcomers alike.
As an English and Spanish speaking Insurance Broker in Spain I help my clients by cutting through the paperwork and explaining each product in full to ensure that they have all of their insurance needs covered whilst in Spain.
Below are some of the insurances for expats in Spain, including information about what the law requires and what you might need in addition to the mandatory Spanish insurances.
All vehicles in Spain require mandatory car insurance before being driven.
Many expats opt for a private medical insurance when in Spain in order to reduce waiting times for treatments with the Social Security system or because they prefer to have a doctor that can speak their language.
Dental cover can be very expensive in Spain and is not included on the social security so a private policy is recommended for peace of mind.
Although home insurance is not mandatory in Spain, there are laws in place that protect neighbours and civil responsibility in the event of an accident. Many banks offer home insurance when you take out a mortgage but this insurance may not cover everything and an independent policy is recommended.
Life insurance ensures greater peace of mind for you and your loved ones and there are products that offer a full range of coverage so that no matter what happens, you and your loved ones will be completely protected.
If you pay Social Security in Spain then you may be entitled to state unemployment benefits but the amount depends on the time worked in Spain. An independent insurance policy will give you time to find a new job whilst keeping up with your monthly outgoings.
Many health insurance policies cover illness and medical treatment abroad although independent travel insurance will make sure that you are covered in the event of lost baggage or flight cancellations.
