Travel Medical Insurance

Anyone who has had to pay a hospital bill in the past will shudder at the idea of getting medical help while traveling uninsured. Illness or injury outside your home country can be a daunting prospect, but ensuring you’re covered isn’t as frightening as you may think. Travel Medical Insurance protects you in the event of an illness or injury when traveling outside of your country of residence and it provides key medical benefits in case of an emergency.

Generally more affordable than most comprehensive plans, travel medical insurance, is typically not offered with ‘package plan’ benefits, such as cancellation, baggage, trip delay, and interruption. The focus on substantial medical and evacuation coverage will save you some dollars.

Important note on Travel Medical: Coverage is only valid outside the insured’s home country (the country where they are a citizen). American citizens, your motorcycle trip to Sturgis will unfortunately not be covered.
