5 Reasons You Should Buy Travel Insurance

Planning an international trip? Most people think trip insurance only covers the cost of a cancelled flight or lost baggage. You probably could absorb those financial losses. But an unexpected medical crisis overseas or an emergency flight home is another matter. Here are 5 good reasons to consider purchasing travel insurance the next time you step outside the U.S.:
  1. Over 65? Medicare covers you only inside the U.S. Cross the border and Medicare stops.
  2. Emergency Medical Evacuation. What if you are really sick and need to come home NOW? Your medical insurance may pay your medical bills but not the flight home.
  3. Immediate Acceptance. Will the ER in Beijing recognize your US health insurance ID card? NO. They expect you to pay up front. Travel insurance can guarantee payments.
  4. 24/7 multi-lingual customer service centers. Who will you call in an emergency? And will they be able to talk to the cashier at the hospital in Brazil?
  5. Malaria, Ebola, H1N1, Dengue, Chikungunya. Enough said.
We work with International Medical Group to offer travel insurance to meet your specific needs, whether it’s for 2 days or 10 months. Peace of mind when you are away from home is surprisingly affordable. suitcase2-263x300
