ProtectionWhen you plan a vacation abroad, what do you think about? Sightseeing? Maybe visiting the beach? Perhaps attending a special event, or catching up with family. You are probably not thinking about getting injured. But injuries are a very real possibility, and because of that you should always travel with international medical insurance.

Slipping, falling, sports mishaps, auto accidents – there is an unending variety of very pedestrian ways that injuries can occur while on vacation Injuries can occur when and where you least expect, and they can cause real financial problems when they do.

You see, even if you have an insurance policy in your native country, it likely does not cover events that occur abroad. So spraining an ankle while on vacation could result in a simple doctor's visit with a very expensive tab. An unanticipated accident could suddenly add a few hundred dollars to your vacation budget.

International medical insurance will absorb the bulk of fees associated with doctor's visits, hospitalization, prescriptions, and a number of other medical costs. Coverage applies from country-to-country, so you do not have to worry about it not being accepted. And the overall plan costs are low, so if you do not need to use it you do not need to worry that you've invested a large sum of money.
