Travelling this March Break? Even if it's only for a week, accident can happen.
According to RSA Travel Insurance, medical expenses in sun destinations could be thousands of dollars. Below is an example.
She's a 22-year-old university student. She made her way to sun destinations during March Break. As a budget traveller, purchasing travel insurance was not her priority. Unfortunately, a wet pool-side deck caused a twisted knee and severely sprained wrist.
Here's the average cost for hospital two nights stay, meedications, physician, ambulance, incidentals(meals), and repatriation(seat grade up to provide extra leg room).
- Punta Cana(Dominican Republic) $6,935
- Acapulco(Mexico) $7,780
- Cancun(Mexico) $8,225
- Florida(United States) $35,020
Total Cost: $6,935 (Punta Cana)- $35,020(Florida)
If she purchased travel insurance at $25, the cost would be down to $0.
If you're thinking of hitting the beach, consider buying travel insurance. When purchasing, check your policy wording especially exclusion clause.
