  • Where there is a sea, there could be seasickness

    Filed Under: Health Insurance
The deep blue seas are among the most preferred holiday destinations for everyone - international students included. A cruise is an experience in itself - a complete vacation - filled with all kinds of activities to suit your whim and fancy.

But the waves can bring with them new health challenges - sea-sickness being the most common one. Having a sound international student travel insurance policy is essential to take care of the medical expenditure should sea-sickness turn into something nastier.

It is still unknown why some people get seasick, while others do not. But, first time seafarers are always worried. You have to be there to say for sure if you are not affected by the yawing yacht. And, good health off the sea is no guarantee that you are resistant to illness on it. If the sickness lasts longer, as it sometimes does, it might cause dehydration and related complications.

Rather than trusting your luck and taking a chance that you will not feel queasy on board, get the international student medical insurance. It may not be of any use after all but, isn't it better to err on the side of safety rather than risk? Commenting is not available in this channel entry.
