Don’t travel without health insurance. Emergency evacuation is expensive. Consider the following when buying insurance:

  • You may require extra cover for adventure activities such as rock climbing and scuba diving.
  • In India, doctors usually require immediate payment in cash. Your insurance plan may make payments directly to providers or it will reimburse you later for overseas health expenditures. If you do have to claim later, make sure you keep all relevant documentation.
  • Some policies ask that you telephone back (reverse charges) to a centre in your home country where an immediate assessment of your problem will be made.
