Why Buy International Travel Health Insurance?

The answer is easy. Whether you travel for business or pleasure, international travel involves risk. You may arrive at your destination to find that your luggage with personal items has disappeared. A personal emergency may necessitate your early return to your Home Country. A medical emergency may require hospitalization or even air evacuation. In most cases, your existing insurance will not provide adequate protection for these and other risks. Without appropriate International Travel Health Insurance Coverage, you may be exposed to significant financial liability. Tokio Marine HCC – MIS Group can’t take the risk out of international travel, but if the unforeseen happens, we will be there to help you with our International Health Insurance.
