Young people travel abroad for different reasons and studying is one of them, this created the need of designing specific travel insurance for students. The good news is that all the companies we work with offer these policies, so you’ll have many options to choose from.
First, it’s important for you to understand that the purchase of an insurance policy doesn’t imply that you’re waiting for bad things to happen, it’s actually the whole opposite: you’re preventing bad things from happening.
Let’s put it this way: you’re studying in a country that’s very far from yours and as you’ve been so busy with your academic schedule, your health collapses and you're in need of seeing a doctor. Of course, you don’t know where to go and neither have enough money to pay for medical attention.
Without student travel insurance you’ll have to take out of your pocket money that perhaps you had intended for other expenses, or -even worse- you wouldn’t be able to go see a doctor at all, damaging your health a lot more!
Now, if before going abroad, you hired an insurance policy, then you’ll have nothing to worry about, because with just a phone call, an expert will assist you in everything you need and you won’t even have to expend a dime, which is great!
Hiring this service will allow you to count with medical assistance, medication and hospitalization expenses, urgent message relay, repatriation; 24 hours travel assistance line, compensation for lost baggage, etc.
