Suggestions for Travel Insurance
August 7, 2013 4:53 PM   Subscribe

Hello, I am an Indian citizen visiting the United States for a few weeks. My travel plans have now extended to include 3 weeks in the United Kingdom and Europe on my way back home. While I do have insurance for my US trip, I do not have any for the UK/Europe leg of my journey. I would like to know which is the best medical/travel insurance policy that I could buy in the United States, given that I am not a resident here. I am looking at a policy that covers 250k USD; I am a 35 year old woman. Thanks a lot!

I used InsureMyTrip.com to buy travel insurance for myself, they aggregate a million plans for simple comparison. They ask for your residence to see which plans apply but have an option for 'not US or Canada'.

But actually, if you already have insurance I would recommend contacting them and asking if it can be extended/added to, which would probably be cheaper.

Seconding trying to contact your existing insurance provider for a modification.

Also, if I remember right, most Indian travel insurance providers (if you bought your existing policy from one of them) have the area of coverage as "Worldwide including US/Canada" or "Worldwide excluding US/Canada" so maybe it is only the period of coverage that might need to be altered.

Insurance Pandit or My Insurance Club might be of help with comparisons/info.
