Is Trip Interruption Insurance Required for Travel Abroad?

No, trip interruption insurance isn’t required. But it’s important to know that some countries require foreign visitors to have international travel insurance that meets specific requirements. Others may only require proof of (any) valid insurance for the duration of a trip.

Will My Current Health Plan Cover Me Overseas?

Your regular health insurance will cover you as always while you travel throughout the U.S., but it may not provide coverage for unexpected injuries, illness, and medical evacuation once you leave the country. Atlas On-The-Go trip interruption insurance includes up to $50,000 of coverage for unexpected medical expenses, a dental benefit, and medical evacuation coverage.

Whether you’re staying in the U.S. or traveling abroad, you may also benefit from Atlas On-The-Go’s coverage for travel delays, baggage delays, missed connections, and more.

How Trip Interruption Insurance Works in Action

  • You’re sightseeing abroad when you get the unexpected news that your grandfather has passed away.

Your Atlas On-The-Go policy’s Trip Interruption benefit could pay for your plane ticket back home so you can be with your family and attend the funeral.

  • Severe weather delays your flight for four hours, causing you to miss your cruise departure.

Your Atlas On-The-Go plan may provide some reimbursement for the additional cost required to fly you to your cruise ship’s next port of call.

  • Your flight is delayed until the next day.

You grab dinner at the airport and then take a taxi to a hotel for the night. You hadn’t factored these extra costs into your budget, but your Atlas On-The-Go plan may provide reimbursement due to the covered flight delay.

  • Your baggage is routed to the wrong airport, and you don’t have access to your clothes and toiletries for several days.

Your Atlas On-The-Go plan could compensate you for the items you buy to get you through until you’re reunited with your luggage.

  • You get a severe case of food poisoning that requires a brief hospital stay.
Your Atlas On-The-Go plan’s Emergency Accident and Sickness Medical Expense benefit may pay for eligible expenses resulting from your hospital visit and the treatment you need to get back to enjoying your trip.

How Much Does Trip Interruption Insurance Cost?

The price you’ll pay for your Atlas On-The-Go plan depends on a couple of key factors:

  • Age: As your age increases -> So will the cost of your plan
  • Trip Length: As your trip length increases -> So will the cost of your plan

Your state of residence may factor into your price too.

For example, let’s say you’re a forty-year-old Arizona resident departing on a 7-day, $5,000 trip. You would only pay $22 for your Atlas On-The-Go trip interruption insurance plan.
