your travel expenses especially traveling abroad. The likelihood that something may happen to you while on a trip,
is unlikely. However, if even the smallest
problem occurs, a fall that breaks an arm or a leg, a car accident, nothing serious but it becomes a big problem when you seek
medical attention. Even worse, if someone should die while
abroad, is a very serious problem, let alone the
paperwork involved. Know this....your U.S.
insurance company doesn't cover you while traveling
abroad unless you have travel insurance included in your health
insurance policy, and you'll have to deal with that upon your
return home. This is a fact of
life today, and you need to be protected when
traveling anywhere, especially abroad and even within the US.

Why You Need Travel Insurance
Heaven forbid, if the accident is serious, or
even a heart attack,
and you need to be flown back home immediately for further
treatment after being stabilized. Well these things do
happen, the odds are low, but can you afford to take that
chance? The answer is NO! 2010 was the perfect
example of disaster while traveling to and in Europe. The
Iceland volcano erupted,
and tens of thousands of people were left stranded without a
hotel, without transportation in Europe, it was nightmare. Then
there were the Europe airline strikes, and European air
controller strikes, that again totally throwing travel into a
dizzy for people from every country traveling in/out of northern Europe.
There were earthquakes in Japan, totally interrupting travel on
the Pacific Rim, and shattering earthquakes twice in
Christchurch, New Zealand. Or it can be as simple as a
flight being late, and missing your connecting flight, and yes
the travel insurance company will
take care of all these flight during your travel until your
return home. Weather and mother nature are not ours to
control and that is an
unknown factor at any given time that can throw your travel off.
Insurance is a necessity for seniors especially those with
pre-existing medical conditions.
This is most important, because as we grow older we're likely to
have more health issues is a given, but with that said insurance
is needed by everyone, from youths to elders that travel abroad
for business, a holiday or school.
You’ll find the best travel
insurance packages to suit your needs from
single trip coverage for individuals, families or groups, to multi-trip annual travel insurance policies for regular travelers, we
offer a range of competitive product options that
provides a higher level of travel insurance cover.
What you should know about
This is similar in context as 'what you should know about food'.
Well, it's somewhat complicated in general, but very simple if
you know the basics, and in the case of travel insurance -- it
is a matter of knowing what the travel insurance plan really
will do for you -- what is and what isn't covered. That is
the single most important equation in buying travel insurance.
Our Insurance plans are very reasonably priced, and we
have several plans to cover your particular needs.
Realistic scenarios and why you need travel insurance -
what does your insurance cover?
1. I'm only going on a high school graduation trip to
Europe; I'm young and healthy, I never get sick; and even if I should sprain an ankle -- what's the big deal?
2. I'm only going to Mexico or Canada after all, I'm
close enough to home if I have a problem, right?
3. Travel insurance is certainly cheap enough, and it
wouldn't hurt to get it, but I'll pass this time!
4. You've decided that it is a good idea to buy some travel
insurance after all, and the travel insurance web site said that you are fully covered for everything!
Well, I am covered for everything...right?
5. In 2010 tens of thousands of people are stranded in northern
Europe, without hotels, without
transportation because of the volcano eruption, are you going to be one of those

controller strikes in northern Europe
again stranding thousands of people, do you really want to be
one of those persons?

them, and the odds are that you won't have any problems on your
trip to another country [this does include travel to Canada or
Mexico from the US]. You're still thinking in the back of you mind
that you really don't need travel insurance. What are the odds
after all - pretty big odds that nothing will occur while your
on a trip? Anyway, you have flight insurance!
Well...that's where you'd better read the fine print and start
asking some questions. Because you are not covered for
'everything with every travel insurance policy! After all, the
travel insurance coverage that will or will not cover you, to take care of any type emergency that could arise while on your
trip - is for you! So check it out!

What's needed, what isn't needed travel insurance
Your personal medical Insurance overall does not cover you when
you leave your country of residence. There are exceptions,
but this is the first rule to follow, and that is contact your
medical insurance broker and find out exactly what is and is not
covered when your travel to another country. To further
elaborate - it's also important to tell your medical insurance
broker exactly what countries that you'll be visiting. Therefore, this is an important question to
ask your regular medical insurance person first, and then the travel
agent how your covered before you buy travel insurance. Find out
exactly what is and what isn't covered, and go from there to
what you do need in the way of travel insurance.

needed while traveling to another country

costs, and this coverage is included in specific plans - not all
plans. Check the details on this coverage!

insurance company from abroad?

you are visiting?
8. If I'm in a serious accident, and need long term hospitalization, will
I be covered to be sent home?
