International travel and transportation are the lifeblood of the global economy and Covid-19 threw a big wrench into its gears.
One giant step toward getting this machine running again is the provision of coverage for medical expenses related to Covid-19 and its variants. Our plans provides up to $100,000 in medical expense coverage for Covid-19 contracted while you are abroad.
The coverage benefit is available to travelers at no additional premium and with no age limit on who can obtain coverage.
