Travel Insurance & Medical Insurance
While you are traveling abroad, consider obtaining travel insurance and additional medical coverage. Travel insurance can be useful in case of trip cancellation, trip delays, and other unforeseen events. We recommend TravelSafe travel insurance for citizens of the US; for citizens of other countries, check out http://www.squaremouth.com.
Medical coverage can be useful if your primary medical insurance plan does not cover you abroad, or is very limited for overseas travel. Inquire as to whether your primary medical insurance plan includes trips to a foreign hospital or a medical evacuation. For US citizens, consult the US State Department's medical insurance overseas page.
