While the 26 European countries that make up the Schengen Area allow free travel between their borders, getting in isn’t so simple. While some countries have reached an agreement with the Schengen Area nations to allow travel without a visa, people from most other countries, including India, need a visa. However, to get a visa, you need health insurance approved for the Schengen Area. So how do you get Schengen health insurance?

One solution for people looking to visit Europe from India is HDFC ERGO travel insurance. Not only does it meet the Schengen Area’s requirements for a visa, but it also covers many of the risks of traveling abroad.
