International Travel Medical Insurance

Whether you are a holidaymaker heading off for a much needed break, a student studying abroad, or traveling with a missionary group, you need to make preparations for how you will be looked after if you require medical attention. Travel medical insurance covers medical illnesses and/or accidents while you are traveling outside your home country. This coverage can begin as early as the day you leave on your trip.

It is important to note that travel medical insurance and trip cancellation insurance cover different things. Should your trip be cancelled or interrupted for a covered reason, a trip cancellation policy will reimburse you for the eligible pre-paid and non-refundable portions of your trip. Trip cancellation can also sometimes include some medical coverage. If you are looking for trip cancellation, check out your options here.

What is international travel medical insurance?

International health insurance is designed for those traveling outside of their home country, inbound or outbound. It covers treatment for unforeseen accidents and illnesses while you are traveling aboard.

When experiencing a medical emergency, or even routine medical care, in a country where you are not familiar with the health system, and where you do not speak the language, international health insurance cover will ensure you get the medical attention you need.

International health insurance cover varies depending on selected plans, but often includes:
 

  • Hospital stay

  • Cover for chronic conditions

  • Choice of medical providers

  • Emergency medical evacuation

  • International travel medical services

  • Repatriation of Remains

  • Accidental Death and Dismemberment

  • Urgent care co-payment
