Everyone in Germany must have some form of insurance at all times to cover hospital stays, emergencies and out-patient medical treatment. There is no ‘self insure’ option. You’ll have a hard time getting a Visa or enrolling as a student etc. without proof of medical insurance. For more info see our section on Healthcare.
Having visited 58 countries(!) I have used WorldNomads.com on numerous occasions. A good friend had a serious illness whilst on holiday in the USA and was in hospital for weeks. World Nomads covered all his medical costs sans hassle. Simply stated, I trust and recommend them.
