Best answer:

Answer by OzNana
It is to insure you against getting an illness or having to pay for medical costs in the event of an accident while you are travelling. Medical / hospital can can be astronomically expensive in some countries, so it’s a good idea to have medical insurance if you go overseas.

It covers the time when you are travelling and the time that you are away.

InsureMyTrip Explains: Why should I purchase insurance from InsureMyTrip, as opposed to my travel supplier? Customer Care Representative Kathy explains why it’s best to purchase travel insurance from a third party source. Comparison websites such as InsureMyTrip.com offer a wide variety of travel insurance plans from respected insurance companies, giving travelers a selection of benefits to choose from. Insurance from a third party such as InsureMyTrip.com also often provides additional travel insurance benefits such as coverage against the financial default of a travel supplier, which is typically not covered if the insurance policy is purchased from the travel supplier or a common carrier.

  1. Yep, it’s a modified insurance policy that covers NEW, unexpected, illnesses or injuries while you are traveling.

    typically, it does NOT cover anything related to a preexisting condition.

  2. That is the same thing. If you are travelling you ARE in the other country. If you get sick in mid-flight or on board a ship, the carrier would take action, but that should be covered by international health insurance.
