Why is international health insurance essential when travelling for an extended period overseas?

  • When sent overseas for a work secondment, it's key to ensure I have access to to the best private care locally and not have to return home and Jepodise work requirements.

  • When planning gap year travels around the world, appendicitis was not something I was prepared for. An appendicectomy and first class private care allowed the adventure to continue without flying home.

    Approximate costs: £13,500/$17,550/€14,850

  • When travelling overseas for 4 months, a short-term international health plan ticked all the boxes with portability from one country to the next.

  • Kidney stones are not expected when sent on a 3 month secondment to Asia. Luckily the costs were covered in full

    Approximate costs: £12,000/$15,600/€13,200

    The website is clear and easy to use. I believe it would be interesting if an invoice could be sent automatically with all the others documents while subscribing for an insurance plan. Saves times for everybody :)

    Your internet performance is really good but one of your call center agents told me that I can send you the documents per Email, that I have to sign. And that I do and I wait since 3 days to your respond.

    slightly slow to set up due to an extra clause being put into pre existing conditions but good service over all.

  • 6 April 2019


    The online subscription was easy to fill and clear to understand. It satisfies the client’s needs.

    Nach einigem hin und her doch die perfekte Versicherung gefunden. Wir hoffen das wir diese nicht benötigen. Bei Bedarf wird sich zeigen wie gut und effektiv die Versicherung ist. Danke

  • 4 March 2019


    very competent and friendly staff, very good insurance conditions

  • 28 January 2019


    Nice and easy subscription but the response time during Christmas and New Year period until the second week in January was catastrophic. No replies by email and on top, the website not available. Due to that fact, I could get my insurance only as from February, so with a delay of 1 month. Otherwise...
