Should Travel Visa Insurance Policy Cover All Schengen Area Countries?

Yes, the travel insurance policy for a Schengen visa should provide coverage for all the Schengen Area countries. The Schengen visa allows you to travel to and within the Schengen Area, which consists of 26 European countries that have abolished passport control at their common borders. Therefore, your travel insurance policy should cover medical expenses, emergency medical treatment, repatriation, and other relevant benefits for the entire duration of your stay in any of the Schengen Area countries. Make sure to check that your travel insurance policy explicitly mentions coverage for the Schengen Area and that it meets the minimum coverage requirements specified by the respective consulates or embassies.
