"Summertime is just memories waiting to happen."
Planning a summer vacation abroad? International travel is an exciting experience and a wonderful opportunity to make happy memories for a lifetime. Once you've selected your destination, booked your accommodations and arranged your transportation, the hardest part is done. Fortunately, the easiest and most important piece of your travel plan is selecting your travel insurance.
Many international destinations require proof of medical insurance before you are allowed to enter the country. Medicare and domestic insurance will not cover you when you are abroad. Whether or not the insurance is mandatory, it is simply too risky to travel internationally without protecting your health, safety, and financial wellbeing. No vacation should cause a financial hardship due to an unforeseen illness or accident when it is so easy and inexpensive to protect yourself.
Among the many benefits of international travel insurance, medical evacuation coverage is one of the most valuable. If you become sick or injured during your travels, you may be denied access to a commercial flight. For example, if you have an accident and are confined to a stretcher, you would have to fly on an air ambulance which can easily cost $50,000 or more. If your geographic location is a remote area, the cost can be substantially higher. Your domestic insurance will not cover this and, in all likelihood, you will have to pay all costs up front.
