Single or Multiple Trips? International Travel Medical Insurance
If you will be buying International Travel Medical Insurance, the next thing you need to ask yourself is if you and/or your family are just taking one trip, or if there will be numerous trips through out the year. If you are going to be taking only one trip, you only need single trip coverage. Single trip plans can be good from 5 days to 12 months and can be renewed if needed. If you will be traveling more than once in a year for business or such, you will need an annual plan. With an annual plan you are covered for any unexpected trips, and you will save money by not buying numerous single trip plans.
International Health Insurance
For those who are relocating, make sure you have International Health Insurance, which can cover hospital inpatient, as well as clinical outpatient care, maternity care, wellness benefits, mental health benefits, physical therapy, organ transplant, and pre-existing conditions.

Having International Travel Medical Insurance will cover the unexpected such as the breakout of flu or an accident.
