  • How to Save Money on Travel (Without Sacrificing Insurance) IV: The Plan

    Filed Under: Blogging

When you are traveling abroad, you need not go without travel insurance to save costs. In fact, you can save a lot of money just by choosing the right international travel insurance for you. Purchasing travel insurance can be a simple process.

When you are looking for travel insurance, consider the following: Purchasing insurance online is usually much cheaper than buying insurance through an agent. Because online comparison web sites also provide a great way to compare plans and rates, you can be assured that you can choose the plan that you want. You can save some money there.

Sometimes, with choice comes confusion. Choose the maximum benefit and deductible that you will need. What will help in this regard is doing just a little bit of spadework in finding out how much health care costs at your destination.

For example, heart surgery costs around $6,000 in India and $40,000 in the U.K. So, if you’re traveling to India, you may not need a high maximum benefit. With just some planning, you might be able to save money not just on travel and hotel, but also on travel insurance itself!

Travel tip: If there is no chance that you will participate in adventurous sports, for example, avoid purchasing the additional coverage.
