Did you know that your domestic health insurance likely does not cover travel medical expenses and evacuation when abroad?
You’re not alone. According to the U.S. Travel Insurance Association, even among those who bought travel insurance, only 50 percent were aware of emergency medical evacuation coverage.
Did you know that other types of insurances, such as homeowner’s or credit card insurance do not typically reimburse emergency expenses for trip interruptions caused by natural disasters or other incidents?
While one in six Americans have had their travel plans impacted by medical conditions, natural disasters, or other events, only one in five had travel insurance.1
Did you know that your domestic health insurance likely won't even cover you if you're traveling on a foreign-flagged vessel?
Beware. Many cruise ships operating in U.S. waters, do not sail under a U.S. flag.
Did you know that in many foreign countries, particularly developing countries, hospitals will admit you regardless of travel medical coverage? But they may also require out of pocket payment before they’ll even begin any treatment.
A travel protection plan can help facilitate payment, ensuring you are limiting exposure to overcharging and minimizing out-of-pocket expenses.
Did you know that medical evacuations can cost more than $50,000?
The United Kingdom’s Foreign Office advises travelers that a medical evacuation from Europe to the east coast of America costs from $50,000-70,000. Helicopter evacuations from European ski slopes can rack up $30 for every minute.2
Did you know that if your trip is canceled or interrupted, you could be out of thousands of dollars for anything you have paid for in advance?
SafeTrip trip cancellation coverage can help remove the worry of costs spiraling out of control, should the unexpected happen and require you to alter or cancel a trip.
