Paraguay Travel Insurance Plans

Do I need a travel insurance plan to visit Paraguay?

It is not required to have a travel insurance plan when visiting Paraguay, though a plan with medical expense coverage is recommended as many U.S. healthcare plans may not provide international coverage. Private medical facilities in Paraguay can get expensive, so having a travel insurance plan that can reimburse certain unexpected medical costs is a good idea. Additionally, Travel Guard’s travel insurance plans offer other coverages for travelers, which may include trip delay and trip interruption coverages, baggage coverage and more to help protect your travel investment.

It’s best practice to exchange currency at a local bank before travel or at an airport exchange kiosk before or after your arrival. ATMs are available in major cities, though it’s recommended to remain vigilant when using them.

What language is spoken in Paraguay?

Spanish and Guaraní are the official languages of Paraguay. Since English is not commonly spoken in Paraguay, it’s a good idea to learn common phrases and sayings before your trip and to bring a translator that works without Wi-Fi.

The dial code for Paraguay is +595, when calling from the U.S. remember to use the exit code of +011, followed by the area code and seven-digit number of the caller you’re trying to reach.

What kind of power adapter do I need for my electronics?

Paraguay uses both a different type of voltage and outlet type than the U.S., meaning you’ll need to bring a power transformer and wall adaptor to use and charge your electronics as normal. We recommend a universal adaptor which can be used on other trips in the future.
