Insurance: Do I have to take out Travel Insurance?

You can insure yourself to be covered in the unlikely event of having any Medical Expenses (which in the United States are always very high) due to accidents or emergencies; make-sure that there is 24/7 customer care assistance available and compare the prices of the various policies.

Here are our Tips:
  • Make sure the Maximum Limit for medical expenses is very high, better if it starts from at least 5,000,000 Euros/USD, you can also find insurance with an unlimited coverage.
  • Always check the Deductible (it is your direct expense after all) and this must be low, preferably zero.
  • If you are not sure of your ability to speak English and deal with local agencies, make sure that the Customer Care Service is reliable and always in operation 24/7 in your own native language.
  • Compare the different companies, their prices and what they offer, you will always have some devisive reviews, and this is normal, if a review is negative, read the answer with the reasons they give to justify what happened.
  • Check and/or ask if there are cases of exclusions, make sure to know what's not covered.

Here you can find an average estimate with the Columbus Insurance (a travel insurance company founded in 1988) for a 15-day stay (to be modified according to your needs) in the USA. The individual fee (for an insured of age between 18 and 64) for Medical Coverage - Baggage - Cancellation is around €80/$90 and with an extra charge of €8/$10, you have ZERO DEDUCTIBLE
