Short term travel insurance

You want to travel, but, what is travel?

When I’ve asked people the question “What is Short Term Travel Insurance?” most of them think it is a type of travel insurance which is used only for short periods of time, at most a month or so. When they tell me that I have to correct them as to what “short term” really means.

Basically it means that you can purchase it for a short period of time usually a minimum of 5 days. But that’s not the whole story it can also usually be purchased for a period of 1 year and most plans will allow you to renew it for up to 2 to 3 years. I’m talking about Short Term Travel Medical Insurance. When you are travelling outside your home country you can also take U.S. style medical insurance with you.

But there is another question. What does this mean to you? Well, it means that if you are going on an extended trip overseas perhaps a work related trip that might last a year to two you can get a Short Term Travel Insurance plan that will provide all of the travel and medical coverage you might need.

Benefits of travel:

Here is a list of the benefits which are pretty normal for a short term travel insurance plan. Selectable deductible and plan maximum, coinsurance, hospital room and board, intensive care, etc.

Of course the premiums you will pay for short term travel insurance will vary from plan to plan and from company to company as well as the other factors like deductible selected and plan maximum selected and your age. This is for an international plan excluding the U.S..
