You’re going on a cruise soon and it’s going to be a memorable one--for all the right reasons, of course. Why? Buckle up: most people assume that when they go abroad, their medical insurance automatically covers them across the meridians. The truth is, traditional plans offer adequate domestic coverage but simply aren’t built for international fiascos.
Even though we’re insurance agents, we never encourage people to turn into worry-warts--especially when they’re planning a vacation!

Budgeting for traveler’s insurance is as pragmatic as budgeting for renters insurance, and usually just the 1% difference that can actually lead to a worry-free pre-, mid-, and post-vacation.
