Group Travel Medical Insurance?
Whether you’re planning to partake in a leisurely getaway, mission trip, student trip, or business venture abroad, traveling with a group presents an opportunity to see the world and take care of business while splitting travel costs.
However, it’s wise to consider the unpredictable issues that might occur, such as travel delays, injuries, and illnesses.
Here are four reasons to consider group travel medical insurance for your trip abroad:
1. Your group could face a travel mishap, accident, or sickness that calls for global insurance coverage. Overseas vacations can expose travelers to new environments, unfamiliar foods, and foreign bacteria. Group travel medical insurance can cover eligible hospitalizations, surgery, travel delays, trip interruptions, and other expenses required to get your group back on track.
2. Your regular health insurance may not cover you outside of your home country. That’s why the U.S. Department of State recommends that you “ask your medical insurance company if your policy applies overseas – and if it covers emergency expenses such as medical evacuation.” If it doesn’t, group travel medical insurance can provide the international coverage you need.
3. Your visa may require travel medical insurance or proof that you’ll be able to pay for unexpected expenses incurred in your host country. Our Atlas Group plan meets the requirements of many visas, including Europe’s Schengen visa. Atlas Group also provides policyholders a visa letter you can use to help prove your ability to pay for unexpected medical expenses.
4. A group travel medical insurance policy can save you money. Our Atlas Group insurance plan offers the same benefits and services of our popular Atlas Travel plan at a 10% reduced rate for groups of 5 or more.
