Insurance

NYC offers some of the finest level of health care in the world. The problem is that it can be prohibitively expensive. It’s essential to purchase travel-health insurance if your policy doesn’t cover you when you’re abroad.

If your health insurance does not cover you for medical expenses abroad, consider obtaining supplemental health or travel insurance.

Find out in advance whether your insurance plan will make payments directly to the providers or if it will reimburse you later for any overseas health expenditures.

We have to stress: a simple visit to the doctor’s office can cost hundreds of dollars, and a hospital stay will cost thousands if you aren’t covered by insurance.

Worldwide travel insurance is available at www.lonelyplanet.com/travel-insurance. You can buy, extend and claim online anytime – even if you’re already on the road.
