International Travel Insurance


You’re traveling in the Far East when you fall seriously ill. Will your regular medical policy pay the bills? And how much will it cost if you require air ambulance transport back to the U.S. to get the care you need?

You’ve been planning your anniversary trip for almost a year, but 2 days before departure your spouse falls and breaks a leg. Will cancelling your trip cost thousands of dollars in lost deposits and airline charges?

Your daughter, who is studying abroad, requires emergency medical treatment. Who do you call to help her? And how do you know she is getting the best care possible?

If they happen to strike while you’re traveling internationally, the complications—and the expense—can be overwhelming.
