Obtaining medical insurance is a critical task that we strongly recommended prior to departing. Why? Because unexpected medical emergencies can occur anywhere to even the healthiest people and the cost of treatment can add up very quickly.
Many insurance companies offer many different options, so it is best to review policies from a few different companies before purchasing as there are variations in what they offer. Some companies also offer “deluxe” packages, which include not only medical, but also trip interruption, lost luggage insurance and so on. Regardless of which insurance package you are reviewing, be sure to read the fine print.
