Everything you need to know about short-term health insurance

Why should I take out international short-term health insurance?

Are you going abroad as part of a WHV (working holiday visa programme) or a world tour? Are you planning a holiday or a longer trip? Will you be travelling through Europe? Think about your health insurance, and cover yourself from the unexpected! The fact is, you are no longer covered by Social Security or the local equivalent of your country of origin once you’re abroad. By taking out short-term health insurance, you benefit from a healthcare solution that:

- is tailored to your budget and the healthcare costs of your destination country
- covers you in your country of nationality, residence, and during your travels
- covers hospitalisation and, sometimes, very high healthcare costs in certain countries
- includes a repatriation benefit, useful in the event of an accident that requires medical repatriation to your country of nationality or residence
