Travel Insurance Q & As

Question 10 of 42 in Overview
What types of supplemental health insurance coverage could I buy?
There are three basic types:

1. A plan that you purchase for each trip or a plan for all travel during the year. The plan is generally limited to medical expenses and medical evacuation coverage while traveling. You buy this from a travel insurance company.

2. A plan that is designed for customers of a tour company or cruise line and sold through the tour operator with whom you scheduled the trip. This type of plan would probably include trip cancellation benefits as well as medical coverage.

3. A package that includes both trip cancellation and related trip insurance coverage as well as health/medical coverage. These bundled plans are available directly from travel insurance providers.
