Crossing the pond for a holiday in the USA? Whether you’re planning on seeing the sights in New York City, trying your luck in Las Vegas or exploring the Everglades in Florida, finding a comprehensive travel insurance policy should be top of your to-do list.
America is just like every other country when it comes to travel insurance: most trips are trouble-free, but sometimes things do go wrong. If they do, having a little bit of help can go a long way – not to mention save you a pretty penny.
Healthcare, for example, is notoriously expensive in America, and even basic medical care can end up costing hundreds. If something serious happens and you need to be transported home as a result of an accident, well, let’s just say it won’t be cheap.
Based on this, you should really consider a holiday insurance policy with medical cover of at least £2 million.
Besides medical cover, there are other things cheap travel insurance can help you deal with.
Lost baggage, cancellation and even lost or stolen possessions can also be covered by your insurance. Personal money and gadget cover can also be added on to some holiday insurance policies.
Some of these may have to be added on to the cover, so always check the small print before you buy a policy.
What's classed as a pre-existing condition? Can you extend your cover? If you're perplexed by your policy, our handy guide to all things travel insurance means you'll never get lost in the legalese again.Read moreabout Your travel insurance questions answered
