The health system in Portugal is similar to the rest of Europe. If you want to travel hassle-free and avoid problems should you have a health problem, the best thing to do is take out travel insurance before travelling.
Check your insurance
The first step is to test all the insurance you currently have (home, car, etc.) and confirm if the insurance you currently have includes healthcare in Portugal - which might just be the case!
Another way to get coverage in Porto is to check in your credit card contract, if you have insurance included when purchasing flights.
Contracting medical insurance
Before heading to Portugal, we recommend that you take out travel insurance. At Civitatis we offer medical insurance from € 9 (US$ 8.90) per person.
