Medical Travel Insurance Made Easy With APRIL

February 26, 2013

Part of the appeal of traveling overseas is that we get to see and experience new things. There is also an element of risk involved, which can be appealing.  But though we might feel like explorers or world travelers, we must be practical. Trust us, it is no fun getting sick or injured in a foreign country.  If you don’t know the language or the land, how will you find a doctor or even a hospital? Furthermore, how will you pay for treatment?

Why is health travel insurance important?

International travel is unpredictable enough without leaving the most important things to chance.  A tourist should never gamble with his health or that of his family, since travel is inherently risky. Trying new foods and exploring alien environments can cause people to fall ill at any time and for a multitude of reasons.  If an illness or injury should occur, it is imperative that you have easy and expeditious access to a medical professional.

How can APRIL help?

Unlike other health travel insurance providers, we worry about our clients first, rather than red tape.  We do not require a lengthy explanations or official forms to authorize medical treatment.  All we need to know is that someone in your party is sick and that they need a doctor ASAP. In most cases, we can send a medical professional to your hotel room shortly after you contact us. If transportation is an option, we may also direct you to the nearest clinic.

What do you need to know?

In a word—nothing! If you purchase medical travel insurance from APRIL, you will be covered. There should be no out-of-pocket expense to you.  More importantly, we will handle all of the arrangements, from the doctor to the transportation services.  Of course, we do offer upgrades for passengers that suffer from chronic health problems and are more likely to get sick overseas.

Medical travel insurance plans with APRIL

Our economy plan, which is designed for single trip travel, covers up to $50,000 in emergency medical expenses.  The more comprehensive plan, which we call UP (short for “upgrade”), offers up to $250,000 in emergency medical coverage.  Which do you need? It really does depend on your health and age and the people you are traveling with. If you have young children or elderly individuals in your party, we recommend a more comprehensive package.
