Traveling Overseas Soon, Don't Forget Your Travel Medical Insurance!

Author: Ken Vandiver

Getting ready for some overseas travel soon? If so you should give serious consideration to purchasing International Travel Medical Insurance, traveling without it could be financially devastating. You can do it but it's really not the best thing for you or your family.

Whether in the rush to get your travel plans finalized or if you don't realize the importance of international travel medical insurance, please don't travel overseas without it. You might be thinking that you already have medical insurance in the U.S. but it very probably doesn't cover you when you are out of the country, check carefully before deciding not to purchase international travel medical insurance.

Maybe your credit card has some sort of medical coverage, check to make sure that you will be covered for any medical emergency that might happen as most credit cards do not give you the type of protection you will need if something happens like illness or injury. For the price of a good international travel medical insurance policy you can't go wrong.

The cost for a good policy will vary of course on your age and how long you will be traveling as well as any options you may add to your policy. But to give you a general idea if you are between the ages of 30 and 39 the cost for a Patriot International policy is $57 for 1 month, if you are between 40 and 49 it would be $73 for 1 month. These prices are for a $500,000 policy with a $250 deductible. Is this worth it? Yes, especially when you consider what the costs could be if you get seriously ill or injured in a foreign country, it could be in the thousands of dollars.

So remember, when you have all of your travel plans finalized, don't forget to get a good International travel medical insurance policy. It really is worth it.
