There’s nothing like having your study abroad dreams come to life, especially when everything falls into place. You’ve made it into the university of your choice and in the city, you’ve always wanted to live in. But on the other hand, there’s nothing like the unexpected to put a dampener on your journey.
And as a student in unfamiliar surroundings with not many people you know, life can go from zero to a hundred and back down to zero in a minute. What if you fall ill or meet with a minor accident at any time during the duration of the course? The situation is all the more daunting when you are unprepared to combat the situation, leaving you completely stranded without friends or family for support, away from the comfort of your home. We don’t want to scare you, but it never hurts to be prepared considering the high medical expenses in foreign countries.
Before packing your bags and setting off to your study abroad destination, it is important to understand the different types of student travel insurance plans available and the benefit of purchasing one. About the things, you should look at in a student travel insurance plan and why it is a good idea to buy one.
Since medical services in a foreign country are really expensive, it can put a dent in your wallet, what with your university fee, accommodation rent, and daily expenditure.
If the student suffers from an ailment or gets injured, the medical travel insurance plan takes care of hospital-related costs, medical expenses, and costs related to emergency surgery.
Loss of documents
When you are traveling abroad, it is necessary to keep the documents with you at all times. Heaven forbid that you end up losing any of your documents like your passport or university letter during transit. In that case, the insurance company will provide adequate cover and proper support.
Loss of luggage
When you lose your checked in-baggage, that’s where your insurance plan comes to your rescue. If your baggage is misplaced permanently, in that case, you will get reimbursed according to the policy limits stated in your insurance plan. This includes the value of the lost baggage with the belongings inside the baggage.
If you are in hospital for more than a week, we’re sure you would not only feel much better but also recover faster if you had your family with you. Your student travel insurance plan will cover the cost for a round trip and arrange for a family member to visit you.
