Have you thought of your travel insurance?
Accidents and illnesses cannot be prevented when travelling. Medical urgencies cannot only
ruin your trip, but they can also dig a deep hole in your wallet. This is where an international
travel health insurance comes into play.
When shopping for a travel insurance, you should never accept less than:
- Medical and hospitalization coverage. In the case of hospitalization, the insurance
company should be able to cover the expenses directly so you do not have to pay from your own pocket and then ask for a reimbursement.
- Medical repatriation assistance. If something bad happens, you want to make sure you
can be sent back home to be treated.
- An urgency hotline that can be contacted 24/7/365. You never know when you’ll need
it, but you do know you want someone to be there if an emergency arises.
- Civil liability coverage. If you accidentally hurt someone or damage private property.
