  • Inclimate Weather Around the World Makes International Insurance a Smart Buy

This time of year, you can always count on 2 things: decreasing temperatures and increased travel. People around the world travel from city-to-city and country-to-country to celebrate the holidays with friends and family, and with the inclimate winter, that means increased risk for injury. That is why it is always a good idea to travel with international medical insurance.

The potential for injury is always present during any sort of travel. But the risk seems intensified this time of year, with the volume of travelers and the often difficult travel conditions. Auto accidents seem more common when snow, ice, sleet, and freezing snow present challenges for drivers, especially those driving in unfamiliar areas. And falls are quite common thanks to slick sidewalks and streets as well.

If you have not taken the time to think about what you would do should an injury occur, you may not only find yourself injured but also hurting financially. If your injury occurs in another country, then the health insurance plan you use in your home country will likely not be accepted. So the surgery for your broken leg or even the fee for the few hours you spent in the hospital having your sprained ankle examined will need to be paid in full by you.

If you are used to just paying coinsurance payments, you may not be aware of how much healthcare costs without having insurance to soften the blow. Depending on the services rendered, you could be facing a bill ranging anywhere from hundreds of dollars to several thousand. International medical insurance is accepted across many countries, and it absorbs the bulk of your medical expenses, leaving you to pay only a small fraction. It is therefore a smart buy anytime of year, but especially during the holiday travel season when injuries may be more likely.
