Travel Insurance is relevant to those traveling abroad as well as those undertaking domestic travel within the country. Medicare and most domestic health insurance plans do not offer the required protection while one is overseas in a foreign country. Many HMO plans will only offer coverage within the local state boundaries.
Travel Insurance plans can be broadly classified as those that include trip cancellation benefits and those that don’t include trip cancellation benefits. Both types include coverage for medical bills in case you fall sick or get injured; the plans that include trip cancellation benefits offer reimbursement of non-refundable trip costs in the event you have to cancel or interrupt your trip.
