Travel insurance for students studying abroad
Students going abroad have special insurance needs. For many, this may be the first time they are traveling internationally without parents, and international student insurance will help protect them while easing a parent's concerns about sending a child abroad.
Students on an educational trip need
medical coverage in case there’s an emergency, but they also should consider travel insurance for students to protect their travel investment. Likewise, they need someone to call for help in an emergency. RoamRight’s plans have these benefits and are great for short-term international student insurance.
Travel Insurance for Students
In addition to international medical benefits, students need coverage for trip-related events as well. Things like:
- Trip Cancellation Insurance: This protects their investment in this educational opportunity. What if they couldn’t go? With
trip cancellation insurance, they’ll get any money paid to a travel supplier back if it’s for a covered reason like an accident or illness.
- Trip Delay Insurance: If their trip is delayed for a covered reason and they miss out on an educational opportunity because of it, travel insurance would cover the non-refundable costs that are lost.
- Baggage Coverage: This benefit provides coverage in case a suitcase is lost or stolen. It also provides for incidentals if the baggage is delayed and the student has to purchase an extra toothbrush and other items.
- Many other benefits: Other benefits include things like
security and political evacuation assistance, trip interruption benefits in case a student needs to come home early, accidental death and dismemberment coverage, and more.
An International Emergency Number To Call For Help
All RoamRight plans come with access to our 24/7 emergency call center. Whether a student needs help with lost luggage, needs to find a doctor close to their location, or anything in between, they have a phone number to call for help. This alone provides a great peace of mind for many students and their parents.
The Difference Between International Student Insurance And Study Abroad Insurance
RoamRight’s international student insurance plans are for short-term educational opportunities. They cover students traveling less than 180 days. The travel insurance benefits do not cover any tuition or school expenses, but do cover costs paid to a travel supplier, such as airfare and hotel expenses.
If you have a group of 8 or more students traveling abroad, please consider becoming a RoamRight partner for extra benefits.
