Post Getting an International Health Travel Insurance   Fri Jan 21, 2011 3:20 pm

There is a wide variety of choices in international travel that makes
going abroad quite attractive, and many people take advantage of this
situation. You will be able to travel by sea, air, or land, depending on
your intended destination. Due to such journeys, many people have
realized the importance of taking an international health insurance

This type of insurance policy has been gaining popularity over the
years. This is in consideration of the fact that the ordinary health
insurance policy is not likely to be accepted in your destination
country, yet you never know when you may benefit from a cover. For
example, you may be involved in an accident that may require you to pay
quite high medical bills, and without a suitable insurance cover, you
may be at a loss as to how to get out of the situation. While health
complications may happen at any time, you will not receive any benefits
that the local government may provide since you are a foreigner. This
means that you should always secure an international health insurance
policy when you travel to another country.

There are basically two types of international health insurance
policies, namely, expatriate and travel insurance policies. Both types
of policies give sickness and accident cover, with differences on the
durations in which you will be covered. Many people go for the travel
health insurance policy rather than the expatriate one, which they view
as more convenient for shorter travel durations. It has a coverage of $1
million on home coverage, trip interruption, as well as ordinary
emergency healthcare.

However, if you expect to stay in your destination country for some
time, it is better to go for the expatriate health insurance policy. In
case you are travelling with your family, you should ensure that they
are covered as well. The expatriate policy is renewable and the amount
may be even $5 million.

Before taking out an international health insurance policy, you should
first of all clearly identify your particular needs. It is this that
will help you to look for the most suitable policy for you. Among the
things you need to bear in mind is the length of time you intend to
take, which may be measured from days to weeks to months, and even

With all its joys, travelling abroad has its own share of complications.
When you take into consideration the cost of travel and other minor yet
necessary expenses, this is likely to add up to quite a lot of money.
You should therefore have a means of protecting yourself against other
huge expenses in terms of unexpected medical bills.
