Frequently Asked Questions
About Medical and Holiday Travel Insurance
Q. Why do I need travel medical insurance? Won't my health insurance cover me abroad?
A. Don’t assume your health insurance, home owner’s insurance, Medicare, Medicaid or credit card policies will cover you when you travel internationally – in many cases, they do NOT. I can find you comprehensive travel, medical and trip cancellation insurance policies to protect you and your family when you travel overseas.
Q. Is travel medical insurance really necessary if I'm only traveling overseas for a short period?
A. Yes, considering 3 out of every 100 vacationers experience some type of unexpected, expensive illness, medical emergency or accident when they travel. Most people do not realize how important medical coverage is while they travel abroad. Keep in mind, your standard health insurance may not cover you when you leave your home country.

Q. What do I need to do to prepare for my trip?
A. This time of year there are a lot of travelers coming in and out of the USA. We should talk about items to think of when planning your travels around the globe.
Now I’m not speaking about insurance because it’s my business…..but insurance should be one of the important “things to do” prior to your trip. We all make checklists don’t we? When we’re planning a trip, whether long or short, we all make sure to make reminders and check them off as we prepare.
- Airplane tickets
- Well check-up at your doctor
- Transportation to and from airport
- Bring camera
- Coordinate with other travelers
- INSURANCE FOR THE TRIP
Actually, as soon as you purchase your airline tickets, that’s when you should call me for your insurance plan. Depending on where you are going and the length of the trip will determine what type of plan best suits YOU.
It’s important for you to know that most regular US health insurance plans do not cover costly emergency evacuations (that’s your Air Ambulance) and other emergency services. This can cost you upwards of $100,000! So let Insurance pay that for you and take care of you!
So make sure to put “INSURANCE” on your checklist and give me a call at 855 499-9915.
