How to choose a travel insurance?
The holidays are coming closer and you want them to be stress-free? Whether you’re taking a long holiday abroad or a mini-break on the Belgian coast, travel insurance is your best option. Generally speaking, insurance coverage is not always easy to understand. So here is some useful information to help you out.
To begin with, a good travel insurance must provide you with essential coverage such as:
- Emergency medical expenses: in some countries, medical care can be very expensive. Do make sure that your travel insurance provides an adequate level of coverage for your medical and dental emergencies, when away from home.
- Travel assistance: in the event of a medical problem and if the facilities in your country of destination are not able to guarantee optimal patient care, you will need repatriation coverage. Travel insurance can also cover the search and rescue efforts for a missing person, keeping you safe in case of a critical event (civil war, natural disaster, etc.), and provide legal assistance. And, of course, cover the expenses such situations can generate.
- Civil liability: a must-have in the event of personal injury or material damage to a third party, as in some countries this can cost a great deal of money.
To select the travel insurance that is best for you, you need to compare the various quotes, and especially:
- the limits on coverage of medical expenses
- the procedures for filing a claim and compensation procedures
- the availability of assistance in the event of an emergency during your stay
- the formalities required in the event of hospitalisation
- the geographical area and number of countries covered by the travel insurance
- the exclusions and limits in the various policies
