Getting Sick on Vacation Could Cost You an Extra $100,000


Many travelers underestimate just how many vacations are cut short by medical emergencies - some almost before they start.

A passenger on board a recent cruise to the Bahamas only made it as far as the Chesapeake Bay before getting ill. He was medevaced from the ship to awaiting EMS just hours after departure.

This was an unfortunate (and costly) end to a vacation, especially if the ill passenger did not have medical evacuation coverage. Many travel and health care policies provide little or no coverage for an emergency medevac, which can cost $100,000 or more.

That's why it's so important to consider medical evacuation insurance before you travel. Check out MedEvacU, a low cost annual plan for travelers and their families, to make sure your next vacation doesn't end up costing $100,000 more than you planned.
