Safety in Greece

In Greece, the main risks are natural: earthquakes, floods and fires. It is therefore advisable to inform yourself of the emergency procedures to follow in the event of this type of event, and to remain vigilant by regularly consulting the Greek civil protection website. Before you leave, take a look at the official recommendations on the France Diplomatie website.

Health and repatriation insurance in Greece

Why take out international health insurance when traveling or living in Greece? Quite simply because healthcare costs can quickly reach very high levels abroad. Repatriation cover is also an essential criterion. In the event of a serious accident, medical repatriation to the nearest medical center or to the country of residence may be necessary. Depending on where you are at the time of the accident, and the medical prognosis, it may be necessary to charter a helicopter or medical aircraft.
