Tips for Buying International Travel Insurance

Please join us in welcoming guest author Andrew Hickey, a travel writer and contributor to Aol Travel.

You’ve purchased your airline tickets, booked the perfect hotel and just finished packing your bags for what is sure to be a memorable vacation.

Here are some ways to make sure you’re covered when you’re in a foreign land.

The Cost: When shopping around for the international travel insurance plan that best fits your needs, the lowest priced policy isn’t always the best one.

Also always check both the price of the policy and how much the deductible will set you back if you need to make a claim.

I find the best price for travel insurance is usually offered in combination with your plane or travel ticket. When companies offer inclusive packages they can usually give better rates!

When you are travelling more then three times a year or when your holiday is longer then three weeks, it could be more profitable to get an annual travel insurance
