Why is international health insurance essential when travelling for an extended period overseas?

  • When sent overseas for a work secondment, it's key to ensure I have access to to the best private care locally and not have to return home and Jepodise work requirements.

  • When planning gap year travels around the world, appendicitis was not something I was prepared for. An appendicectomy and first class private care allowed the adventure to continue without flying home.

    Approximate costs: £13,500/$17,550/€14,850

  • When travelling overseas for 4 months, a short-term international health plan ticked all the boxes with portability from one country to the next.

  • Kidney stones are not expected when sent on a 3 month secondment to Asia. Luckily the costs were covered in full

    Approximate costs: £12,000/$15,600/€13,200

    The insurance policy itself was a very good deal but the customer servise let me down. I have sent many emails to fix a spelling error in my name and nobody answered. I have even tried to reach the London and PAris office.

    Nice and easy subscription but the response time during Christmas and New Year period until the second week in January was catastrophic. No replies by email and on top, the website not available. Due to that fact, I could get my insurance only as from February, so with a delay of 1 month. Otherwise...

    We have never received the second email With the forms that we were supposed to sign and send it back to you.
