Holiday Health Insurance: 6 Reasons You'll Need It

Holiday health insurance is comprehensive coverage for the vacationer or business traveler while on a trip. The smart traveler plans ahead!

Travel Insurance Coverage

Not all customary travel insurance covers emergency medical treatment, so be sure to speak with your agent to be sure of the extent of your coverage.

6 Reasons You’ll Need Travel Health Insurance

Reasons to get travel health insurance include:

  1. You’ll be frequently on the move in unfamiliar environments while on a trip; this increases your risk of getting involved in an accident.
  2. You may be more open to adventuring while on a trip (by skiing, skydiving, bungee jumping, water rafting, etc.) and will have an increased risk of injury.
  3. You may be exposed to different foods and water sources than that to which your body is accustomed, which may lead to sudden illness.
  4. You may be confined to compact transportation accommodations, exposing you to more germs and increasing your risk of sudden illness.
  5. If you don’t have health insurance, holiday health insurance can provide affordable coverage for you during your trip, when you’re more at risk.
  6. Even if you have health insurance, your health insurance may not cover all medical treatment you may need on vacation, particularly in another country.
What Holiday Health Insurance Covers

Travel health insurance can cover full emergency medical costs while on a trip—even in another country! Your plan can also quickly provide a hospital with your medical records to assist in your treatment.
