Travel Insurance to Russia 

Russia (Capital Moscow) is a pivotal place for the purposes of travel insurance. West of the Ural Mountains is regarded as Europe with cheaper travel insurance premiums, East is the start of Asia - which is regarded as "Worldwide Excluding travel to the USA/ canada". Travel Insurance premiums are therefore substantially higher and cover for the over 75, or over 75 for extended periods is harder to obtain (except with us) and can be quite expensive

Countries Bordering Russia

Although not as massive as the former USSR, the size of Russia means that it borders many countries both in Europe and in Asia. Backpackers tend to travel to the south of Russia or fly to different starting points when visiting Asiatic and Oceanian countries.

Europe - West

Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia


Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, China, North Korea

In addition Japan and the USA (Alaska) are very close through sea channels.
