Posted by on in Insurance

Whenever we interact with new customers thinking about trip medical insurance, one of the points we try to drive home the strongest is this:

When you are planning to travel abroad, it's really important to make sure your medical insurance will go with you.

Sometimes it is necessary to purchase secondary insurance to cover gaps in your current coverage while you spend time abroad. The first step to securing the right coverage is to understand the limits of your domestic policy and figure out what benefits you will need from a policy.

With that in mind, we have produced this helpful video full of quick tips to get you thinking about what is most important when it comes to trip medical insurance.

Here are a few of our favorite tips from the video:

  • Whatever the reason for your trip, sometimes health issues can force you to cut your travel short. A good policy will cover you for medical evacuation.

  • Make sure you can access your ID cards online, just in case you need another copy while traveling.

  • It is key that your trip medical insurance policy provides you access to a medical network in your destination, whether you are headed for the Australian Outback or the canals of Venice.
