International & Expat Health Insurance
In a world of opportunity it is increasingly popular to move between countries to both live and work. This type of lifestyle calls for an increased level of cover compared to that of a normal travel policy.
Despite exotic countries bringing exciting lifestyles some healthcare systems may not be like anything you are used to at home, therefore it is imperative you protect you and your family’s health during a prolonged stay abroad.
What is it?
This is cover that protects you and your family’s health and wellbeing when living and working abroad.
Who needs this cover?
• Individuals or families living in another country.
• Those who are working abroad – even if only for a short period of time.
Why do I need it?
Unfortunately the standards of healthcare abroad are often not the same as what we are used to at home. Combine that with a language barrier, unfamiliar surroundings and different protocols and falling ill could prove not only financially devastating but emotionally draining too!
This article shows the kind of costs you could face if you weren’t equipped with the right protection when travelling abroad. https://www.abi.org.uk/News/News-releases/2011/08/53-million-a-week–travel-insurers-help-a-record-number-of-people-who-fall-ill-abroad
Countries could turn you away if you do not have the correct insurance in place on arrival. Imagine the frustration of being turned around at the airport on your arrival by not having the correct cover in place.

Yes. You tell us your plans and we can provide you with suitable cover to suit your personal needs.
I have travel insurance isn’t that the same thing?
