Next month I am going to Germany with my family. My wife is 28 weeks pregnant. What would be best for me travel insurance or health insurance? I am not sure does German government provide health insurance for traveler? I got some information from one of my German friend but not enough.I am not sure what I have to do? .
Kellie from World Nomads here. If you do buy a travel insurance policy through World Nomads, pregnancy can be covered with conditions that apply depending on where you're from (your country of permanent residency). In general, if pregnancy is covered by a policy available through World Nomads,all policies can cover up to 26 weeks gestation only. So while you can certainly buy a policy to cover your family on your trip to Germany, at 28 weeks gestation it will not be possible to cover your wife for anything related to her pregnancy. We are unable to provide any information related to your query about health insurance provided to travellers by the German government as this is a topic we are not familiar with. Best of luck.
