  • Staying Cool when Sick Abroad-IV: Life and Flight Insurance

A visit to Berlin is incomplete without a visit to the Pergamon. To enjoy the museum, you must remain healthy, and international travel health insurance goes a long way in that department. But the trip actually starts when your airplane leaves the runway. You want to make sure that you are insured enough—perhaps with international flight insurance—that your mind is at ease.

The actual travel can actually be quite dreadful and can bring about some symptoms of illnesses. Unfortunately, this is also the most ignored part of the trip in terms of health. To stay healthy, pack a basic medicine kit in your carry-on luggage. Also ensure that you walk around the airplane from time to time.

Also, if you will be traveling to a different time zone, ensure that your trip is not too impeded by jet lag. Budget a day to recover from it. Think about life and flight insurance. Most plans offer AD&D, repatriation of remains, and emergency evacuation benefits. Some plans, such as Travelex Flight Plus, also cover limited emergency medical expenses for illnesses suffered during a flight.

However, not everyone will benefit from flight insurance, and it is best to check the level of coverage the airline provides. Be aware that the insurance provided by the airline typically features many caveats. As always, please read the fine print before purchasing any insurance policy.
