Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is an insurance policy that protects you from comprehensive medical costs (including helicopter rescue, air ambulance, and treatment costs) related to your illness or accident.

Travel insurance is a type of insurance that provides coverage for unexpected events or mishaps that can occur while traveling. It's designed to protect travellers from financial losses and help them manage unforeseen situations that might disrupt or affect their trip.

The coverage and specific scenarios covered can vary between insurance plans, so it's essential to carefully read the policy details to understand what is included and what might not be covered. Travel insurance can be purchased for individual trips or as an annual policy for frequent travellers.
