It's like learning about insurance from a misfit uncle the family doesn't like to discuss. Despite attention deficit and other issues, the author (perhaps unintentionally) has a wealth of expertise in international health & travel medical benefits. You'll wind up with less insurance confusion and get special insight on international health/travel medical plans. Unusual for an insurance blog, it offers an aftertaste of fun; plus a hint of basil

What is the difference between trip insurance and travel medical insurance and why would I care?
Most of the time when people refer to travel insurance, they immediately think of what's often referred to as trip cancellation insurance. This is a fine choice for some travelers, but since it's primarily a Property & Casualty coverage, rather than a Life & Health product, the coverage devotes a heavy focus upon the financial exposures involved in deposits and payments to airlines, hotels, etc. If you are traveling with a tour group this might be a good selection for you. However, Azimuth provides travel medical insurance (fully insured by Lloyd's, London) that is clearly dedicated to providing you with superior protection against accidents and unforeseeable illnesses - and you even have coverage if your trip is delayed. There's a whole menu of other travel benefits as well that you can enjoy with the Beacon Series plan. It's affordable and offers you a terrific value for your premium dollar.
