What is Travel Insurance?
Travel insurance helps protect the financial investment you made in your trip as well as provides medical coverage outside of your network.

If you have an emergency and need to be transferred to a better hospital, can you pay for it? These situations happen more often than you’d think – and are costly when they do!
What does Travel Insurance cover?
