When considering the benefits of travel insurance, it is important to remember that:

  • Treatment at private medical centres (for example, in the event of an emergency) will not be covered unless you have medical insurance even if your country has a reciprocal health agreement with the one you are visiting.
  • Any trips to a doctor for non-urgent health problems and any prescriptions will not be covered without insurance.
  • If you need medical evacuation back to your home country, this will not be covered by any health care agreement other than travel insurance.
  • Medical treatment abroad can be very expensive.
  • Travel insurance will cover personal liability, if you accidentally cause injury or damage to others or their property and they sue you.
  • Tourists are common targets for criminals.
