Short term international health insurance

Reassurance if you’re working, living or travelling abroad for 3-11 months

Why short term international health insurance?

Whether you’re travelling the world, working abroad for a few months or maybe moving overseas but you're unsure how long you'll be away for, consider using our short term cover. We can cover you for less than 12 months with exactly the same level of cover as the Standard international health insurance plan - just for less time.

Choose any time period from 3 to 11 months and only pay for the cover you need. That means you don’t need to waste money on an annual policy when you won’t need to use it for the whole year.

An international standard of cover

With our short term plan, you get exactly the same cover, support, and expert global customer service as with the yearly Standard cover level.

With cover for a wide range of treatments including cancer treatment and emergency help, your health is in safe hands while you’re away.

You can also enhance your plan for extra reassurance. Adding out-patient cover means routine scans, tests and doctor appointments will be included too.

Cover wherever you happen to be

You'll have cover throughout your chosen area - including or excluding the USA. Emergency cover is included as standard everywhere if you need to go into hospital for a day or more, even if you've excluded USA from your plan. That means no matter where you are, you can access expert care quickly. 

And if it’s an emergency and you can’t get the treatment you need locally, our team will make sure you get to where you need to be – and back home again.

Cover that goes further than travel insurance

Unlike travel insurance, a short term international health plan will cover your general health as well as emergencies. That means you’re covered if you need to have a scan or break your leg – you won’t need to wait until you get home to get the treatment you need.

We’re available 24/7 too, so there's always someone to speak to whether it's day or night. We have the knowledge to help you navigate the local healthcare system or help you with your claim.
