medical travel insurance

Most travellers and travel insurance companies agree that medical travel insurance is the most important cover of all. Lost baggage, stolen wallet and missed flight cannot be nearly as horrifying as the need for urgent medical attention abroad and the astronomical bills that will follow after.

Why is Medical Cover Necessary?

Getting ill when travelling within EU may not lead you to bankruptcy, as EHIC might solve some of your problems. Countless numbers of travellers have had to learn the hard way when they found out EHIC does not entitle them for all the medical procedures they may need and will not cover repatriation back to your Home Country. If you are travelling outside EU, you need to know that hospital costs in the USA can reach $10,000 per day, whilst medical evacuation can cost you more than $100,000. You never know whether you will get a horrible allergy in Peru or get bitten by a stray dog in Singapore. You may be the most careful person in the world and still slip when trekking in Canada and break your ankle. Remember that when travelling without travel insurance you are not only risking your finances, but also your health and in some cases, even life.

Globelink is a UK Company with around 1 million satisfied customers since 1996

How to Choose Medical Travel Insurance?

High prices don’t always mean good coverage, so make sure you get the cover you need. Note that some pre-existing medical conditions may be excluded from the coverage and if you have any, you might need to provide additional information. Pay attention to every exclusion outlined in policy wording and make mental notes of what you should do or avoid doing whilst on a holiday. If you want to try bungee jumping, white water rafting or some other adventure activity, make sure your medical travel insurance policy will cover it.

Note that Globelink offers medical travel insurance as a standard part of all its policies for different types of trips and travellers with different needs and preferences.
