Planning the trip of a lifetime? Travel insurance can be useful if your journey includes a cruise, package tour, or an apartment or house rental. The same is true if you should need medical insurance while traveling overseas. It’s always smart to determine whether your existing insurance policies will cover your needs while you and your family are away.
Check with your medical insurance provider before purchasing extra coverage for your overseas trip. Many health plans in the United States do not cover you outside the country unless you are traveling on business. Work with your travel consultant to see if travel insurance would be a good idea for your next trip.
