Why Iran Travel Insurance?

After saving for a while and doing research, you’ve finally decided to apply for Iran visa. Hooray! You’ve probably heard that you need a travel insurance for your trip, but you wonder “is it really necessary to get a travel insurance for Iran?” Well, the answer is short and simple: YES.

Basically, there are two reasons for having a travel insurance for traveling to Iran; First, a travel insurance is required to collect your Iran visa; without having a printout of your valid insurance, you can’t collect your visa from the embassy or the visa office at the airport. Second, you don’t want the unexpected mishaps to ruin your long-awaited trip. A good travel insurance can protect you against mishaps and cover many unexpected and exorbitant costs.

Can I use my existing travel insurance?

If you already have a travel insurance, be careful because a travel insurance for your trip to Iran can be different from a travel insurance to other destinations. That is, many insurances sold outside Iran are not valid for a travel to Iran or at least some parts of Iran. The problem is that, due to the long history of political tensions and sanctions between Iran and west, many insurers do not put Iran in their destination lists. So, if you want to use your travel insurance for getting your Iran visa, make sure ‘Iran’ is clearly mentioned in their list.

There are insurance companies which use general terms like ‘Asia’ or ‘Middle East’ in their lists, but even such terms are not acceptable for the visa officer. You can ask your insurance company to send you a document with “Iran” being mentioned in the list.

How to get Iran Travel Insurance?

If you don’t have a travel insurance or your travel insurance is not valid for Iran, you need to book a travel insurance for traveling to Iran. While there’s a choice of buying an insurance from the embassy or the visa office at the airport, with 1stQuest, you can book your insurance online. With 1stQuest’s online insurance service, in less than 5 minutes, you’ll book your Iran travel insurance at the lowest price and receive it in less than two working days.

What is covered by the insurance?

Anything from a lost baggage to a family emergency can ruin your trip and bring your trip to an end before it even begins. 1stQuest’s insurance partner is Saman Insurance Company, one of the most renowned and reliable Iranian Insurance companies.

1st quest made our trip planning to Iran easy and efficient. We could leave our home country with everything planned to the smallest detail, that is why we had no problem to get VOA. Arezou from the customer service had a caring attitude and attention to the smallest demand made by us - thousand of thanks to her😁😁😁. The guide Mohammed in Kashan that we had through 1st Quest was so knowledgeble and helpful that we can not imagine a better guide than him. Most of hotels were good and those, which lacked cleanliness, compensated it fully by right attitude and incredible kindness. All i can wish you - stay as you are - and I hope we will come back soon. Thank you😁

My friend and I spent just over a week in Iran and initially tried to book hotels ourselves, but most of the time they did not reply to our emails or quoted rates that seemed a little high. We then turned to Bardia at 1stQuest who booked a range of hotels for us, from large business hotels like Espinas Palace in Tehran to smaller boutique hotels with only 6 rooms in places like Kashan and Yazd. We paid upfront by credit card, which went smoothly and, in the 2 cases where we could compare, the rates quoted were lower than those quoted by the hotels directly. Bardia also organised an airport pick-up for us in Tehran in a comfortable car. Bardia checked in with us via whatsapp during our trip to ask whether everything was going well, and to tell us that he was always reachable if we had any queries. The service provided was professional, polite, reliable, and saved us time and money. Highly recommended.
