What is the difference between international medical and travel insurance?
There are a few very key differences:

  1. The purpose of travel insurance is to ‘get you home’ so you can be treated by your domestic national health provider. Travel insurance covers a specific trip or trips.
  2. International medical insurance (generally) renews for life, so if you get a medical condition, you know you have life-long cover.

In short, travel insurance is a temporary emergency style policy and international medical insurance is a private health insurance that’s with you for life so long as you continue to pay your premium.
