The simple answer is yes. Even though Sweden has world-class medical care, which you may be able to access for the same price as locals, hospital bills and doctors’ fees can quickly get out of control.
And it isn’t just medical treatment you should be thinking about. If you have something stolen in Sweden, or miss a flight, or even just leave your phone on the bus, a good travel insurance policy will help you no end. Decent insurance companies will not only work out the financial side of things, but also provide you with any assistance you need while you’re away from home.
