If you’re covered by medical insurance at home, you may also be covered while you’re traveling abroad.
It’s the same body. It’s just in a different place!
But check to be sure that you’re covered in Turkey.
Other sorts of insurance also cover medical expenses:
— Personal Accident/Injury (PAI) protection may be included in your car rental insurance—or not.
— If you’ve purchased a Trip Cancellation policy, you’ve probably got some medical protection. Read your policy carefully and know what’s covered.
— If you use a premium credit card (“gold,” “platinum,” etc) and paid for transportation services with it, you may have some flight protection, and also medical coverage as part of the card’s auto collision coverage. Get an up-to-date version of your credit card Agreement (probably available online), read the terms, and know what coverage you have.
Self-insuring for medical coverage is probably foolish, so consider contacting one of these insurance agencies:
United Kingdom & Europe: contact JS Insurance for coverage of trip cancellation, medical, mobile phone, computer, scuba diving and other travel insurance.
USA: contact InsureMyTrip.com for no-obligation price quotes on all sorts of policies.
