With summer travel plans well and truly underway, it’s easy to overlook the importance of travel insurance, but this could be an incredibly costly mistake.
Imagine you are holidaying in the Greek Islands with your spouse and you develop a serious illness. The local doctor sends you to the mainland, which has suitable medical facilities. The doctor at the medical centre in Athens recommends hospitalisation so you can be monitored. Your spouse stays in a nearby hotel to support you when you need them the most.
Sound far-fetched? Well, it’s not. This is what happened to one Australian Seniors Insurance Agency (ASIA) travel insurance policyholder, who was only too happy to be covered. He was compensated not only for his hospital costs, but all other overseas medical expenses, including his wife’s accommodation during the time the he was in hospital.*
The policyholder wrote to ASIA to say:
“We wish to thank you for your prompt and professional handling of the recent medical emergency [we] experienced whilst overseas. We have advised all our friends and business associates of your excellent service and caring attention during this entire episode.”
So you see, arranging your travel insurance is every bit as important as deciding where to go on holiday. When you’re planning your next trip, consider an ASIA travel insurance policy, with one-trip international policies starting from $49!^
ASIA travel insurance provides the following benefits and more:
- overseas medical and dental expenses*
- luggage and travel documents, including loss, theft or damage*
- loss of deposits and cancellation charges*
- additional expenses*
- replacement of money*
