Short term health insurance in depth:

Are you planning a short trip overseas? Maybe you're going to travel round a few countries or staying in one place for less than a year. Even though you are only going for a shot period of time, health insurance cover is still extremely important and international short term health insurance provides the ideal solution for short term visitors such as yourself.

It offers travelers protection against the costs of medical treatment overseas which can be extremely expensive depending where you are situated. You never know when you might need medical attention abroad - so you must make sure you have insurance.

International short term health insurance is primarily a short term solution for people traveling overseas and is not suitable for expatriates living abroad long term.
