Trip and Travel Medical Insurance Options
Whenever you travel abroad, you want to make sure you have a high-quality international travel insurance plan in place to protect you in the event something happens. At International Citizens, we can provide you with a number of travel insurance plans that provide anything from short-term single trip insurance, annual multi-trip insurance and a range of specialty plans.
With so many travel insurance options to choose from, sometimes it can be hard to decide which insurance solution is the best. You may also have coverage in place from your domestic health insurance, or you may have coverage through a credit card or other source – but are not happy with the levels of coverage. With all the decisions to make, and working out which plan is right for you, it can be a daunting prospect.
What are the different types of plans?
Trip insurance plans typically insure the cost of your trip against the chance that you might not be able to go. They can be limited so make sure you read the fine print. In short, if you have to cancel your trip for covered reasons, you will be reimbursed for the costs of the trip. Read the fine print to make sure you understand the benefits, specifically the situations where they will reimburse you for. The cost of Trip Cancellation insurance is typically between 5% – 10% of the trip costs
Through our partnership with International Travel Insurance Group (ITIG), we can walk you through the process and help you choose what international travel insurance options are the best for you.
