Why is travel protection important?
We like to think that it won’t happen to us, but one in six Americans have had travel plans affected by health issuesF58. Oftentimes, the health insurance policies that cover you in the U.S. don’t include protection for when you’re traveling out of the country.
Costs for emergency care and transportation to a medical facility, and travel expenses if your trip is cut short, can add up quickly when you’re in a foreign country. Travel insurance can be a smart way to plan for the unexpected and help add some reassurance to your trip.
