Why do you need international insurance?

Your current domestic insurance policy likely does not provide coverage abroad.

If you are traveling, living, studying, or working abroad in an international location — international insurance will provide benefits and coverage.

When Terror Strikes: Why International Travel Protection is More Important than Ever Before

ASA Insurance Insights - April 2016

When friends and loved ones are preparing for a trip abroad we wish them safe travels. In reality, staying safe depends on much more than just well wishes. Terrorism incidents, both home and abroad, are happening with increasing frequency and in places traditionally considered safe destinations making travel insurance more important than ever before for international travelers.

Travel insurance not only covers you if you are traveling abroad when an act of terrorism occurs but also provides you with the tools to stay safe, with 24/7 access to health and safety information for your international destinations. This valuable service helps you prepare for your trip and also provides up to the minute updates while you travel.

Take a moment to review the following precautions to help ensure you are prepared for a crisis when you are traveling:

  • The U.S. State Department's website is a great source of information for the international traveler. The site is constantly updated with the latest news including everything from severe weather alerts, travel warnings, ways to cope with a crisis situation, to replacing a lost passport. You can also sign up for email alerts that notify you automatically when conditions warrant.
  • The US Embassy website has consular contact information worldwide. Include this information in your travel documentation and also provide it to your loved ones in case there is a terrorist attack in the country you are visiting.
  • Sign up for email alerts from news websites that you know and trust.
  • When visiting cultures that are very different from the U.S., it is wise to dress in modest clothing and modify behavior according to local customs. If you are visiting holy places, for example, educate yourself ahead of time on the etiquette and protocol when in these areas.
  • Make sure loved ones back home have a copy of your itinerary and keep them informed when your plans change.
  • Be diligent about making sure you always have your travel documentation, passport, emergency contact information, credit cards, keys, etc. in a safe, accessible place at all times. When leaving a restaurant, the bus, your hotel, etc., double check that you are leaving with everything you came in with.
  • Have an emergency plan. Make sure you have scanned copies of your important documents, access to money and a credit card that can be replaced quickly if it gets lost or stolen. Provide a copy of this information to someone in the U.S. in case phone or internet access is limited.

ASA's travel insurance experts understand that your health and safety are the most important aspects of your trip. We have read the fine print and know how to find the precise travel insurance plan to protect you and your travel investment. Let us help you have peace of mind around the world.
