When it comes to taking vacations in the United States and abroad, it is always good to consider that a trip abroad or overseas may be an expensive adventure, but the expenses of a trip abroad can quickly add up if one gets caught by any type of emergency when traveling. If you have never taken international trips before, it is imperative that you do so with the proper protection in mind so that you are not left behind in the event that something unexpected happens.
Nationwide insurance covers all aspects of your vacation, from the very beginning of your trip until it is over, including pre-existing conditions that may arise along the way. If you took trips and qualified for travel insurance as a member of your Nationwide Current Account, your coverage will typically apply regardless of the length of your stay abroad, provided that you have not missed your departure date. However, if you missed your original departure destination, your coverage will not cover you on a later trip where you did not leave enough time to actually travel from your original departure point to the departure destination.
For example, if you had purchased your Nationwide coverage online, and your luggage has been lost or stolen, your insurer will not help pay for any of your lost luggage. The same holds true for any medical expenses and/or prescriptions you may need, as well as other types of emergency medical emergencies or trip cancellation.
If you are traveling overseas as part of your National Geographic Adventure Pass or your National Geographic Expeditions pass, your coverage will provide you with coverage to any country or region within the globe that you plan to visit in your trip. For example, if your planned trip involves exploring the Galapagos Islands or South America, you will have coverage even if your itinerary calls for visiting a third country such as Thailand, Cambodia, or Laos.
Some travelers, however, choose to take out coverage to cover only their specific travel plans. Some may want to take a cruise, while others may prefer to hike, scuba dive, or backpack across the country. By doing so, you can often make sure that your travel plans are covered in the event that you encounter any type of emergency when traveling that is out of your control.
Nationwide Travel Insurance provides coverage for many different types of events abroad. In addition to the basics like health and accident, the coverage plan also includes coverage for cancellation fees, emergency evacuation, lost baggage, and emergency travel plans, among other items. It is important, therefore, to review the terms and conditions of the policy to make sure that you are getting the best coverage for the lowest premium possible. This will ensure that you get the best protection for . . . . . . your money.
