Are you a US citizen studying abroad for the 1st time? Whether you are traveling to Europe or Asia, there are many International Student Travel Insurance plans that meet your needs.

US students participating in exchange programs, study abroad programs, or international internships are in most cases required by their college or university to purchase some kind of travel insurance. While living in a foreign country is both exhilarating and culturally educational, getting sick while abroad can be a major hassle.

Save yourself the stress and unexpected expenses by purchasing International Student Travel Insurance.
This international medical insurance will provide coverage for cases ranging from the flu to surgery. Hospital expenses, expenses due to medical procedures (x-rays, etc.), and doctor visits will all be covered under international health insurance. The costs of emergency medical services (ambulatory services) will also be taken care of through international student health insurance.

Most people understand the importance of having health insurance while residing in the United States. However, many students and travelers underestimate the important role health insurance can play when spending time abroad. The purchase of an international health insurance plan will not only protect the insured from large and unexpected medical expenses, it will also make treatment and hospitalization less stressful and manageable.
