Default Travel insurance to travel outside Spain

Hi! I'm British, living in Barcelona, and will shortly be travelling to the US for my work. I need to get some insurance (medical) for the trip, and was wondering if anyone could recommend a company, please? (Here I just use the public health service so don't have day-to-day insurance). I've been to the States before, but from Britain, and I *think* that to buy UK insurance you have to be living there, so any companies I've used before wouldn't be valid.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I travelled to the US from Valencia last October and used this company for EU residents:

Fortunately I didnīt have to make any claim, so I canīt comment further.

There are a couple of other links here:

Good Luck and Buen Viaje!

As an uninsured US citizen, you really shouldn't get sick here.
