Make sure you have the right Travel Insurance policy before departing for Brazil.

As the largest country in South America, Brazil is home to the world’s most diverse and fascinating cultures and landscapes. Before travelling to this country filled with riches, don’t forget to pack your Travel Insurance. 

With culture, religion, sports, and friendly locals it’s no wonder millions of travellers flock to Brazil each year. There are over 1,500 beaches to choose from, and thanks to the tropical climate, you can visit the crystal clear waters all year round. There are plenty of beaches to choose from,  Copacabana, Ipanema, Elho, Caraiva and  Fernando De Noronha are some of the best that Brazil has to offer.

One thing you can’t miss out on when visiting Brazil is the Rio De Janeiro Carnival. Although the crowds are large and the heat intense, no one knows how to throw a party better than the Brazilians. Samba dancing, colourful crowds and vibrant music fill the streets. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience which is not to be missed.

Food, food, food! Brazilian cuisine has gained international attention from restaurants worldwide, and there is nowhere better to enjoy the delicacies than in Brazil itself. Visit the open fire pits in the Rio Grande do Sul fields to try the tastes of Brazilian barbecue or take a stroll around one of the many food festivals Brazil has to offer. One of the best ways to understand the culture of a country is through its food. 

If you consider yourself a nature lover, then Brazil is the perfect place for you. With the Amazon River and Rainforest, the Iguazu Falls, over 62 National Parks and hundreds of conservation areas, travellers can sustainably enjoy Brazil. Regardless of where you visit or what you decide to do, always ensure your Travel Insurance covers all your holiday and health needs. It’s better to be safe, especially in an unfamiliar country. 

 

Travel Tips to follow during your trip to Brazil

Here are some of our top travel tips to help your holiday run smoothly when travelling to Brazil.

Contrary to belief, Spanish is not the native language of Brazil

When visiting Brazil, many tourists are under the impression that their native language is Spanish. However, this is not the case. Portuguese is the official language of Brazil. Some Brazilians speak English, but this is more common in tourist locations.

Green man does not mean go. Red light does not mean stop

Unlike in many other countries, in Brazil, you should always wait for the car to stop before crossing the road, regardless of the green light that is telling you to go. In the bigger cities, providing there is no traffic, it is acceptable to drive through a red light, and it’s a pretty common thing to do. Keep this in mind when exploring and be very cautious when driving or crossing.

Make copies of essential documents

A legal requirement in Brazil is to carry photographic identification with you at all times. In very rare cases, you will be asked to provide proof of your identity, but rather than carrying important documents such as your passport, driving licence or any other form of ID, carry photocopies. Ensure they are clear and recognisable.

Remain vigilant

Brazil is one the most memorable countries to visit. However, there are some things you need to be aware of. The cities are known for their high levels of crime, with robbery being the most notorious. Depending on the areas you visit, the crimes will differ in severity. When travelling around Brazil, familiarise yourself with the towns and research the riskier areas, stay within your tour group, avoid wearing expensive jewellery and stay vigilant. Your Travel Insurance will protect you against any lost possessions.

    Is healthcare free for tourists in Brazil?

    Similar to the NHS, Brazil offers tourists government-funded public healthcare. It’s free for everyone – including tourists. However, the waiting times are long, and the free healthcare is unlikely to cover everything. That’s where Travel Insurance steps in. You should always call the emergency medical assistance number first.
