Travel and Health Insurance

By definition, travel insurance offers cover for accidents or mishaps when you’re abroad, usually for a short time. With most providers, it includes a small amount of medical cover1. But if you’ve already taken care of your healthcare needs with AXA’s global health plans, then you can make things easier for yourself, by simply adding travel cover to your policy**. You’ll have one combined travel and health insurance plan to manage per person, and you won’t double up on payment for any medical benefits.

This optional upgrade offers cover for things like lost baggage or cancellations. So whether it’s a beach holiday with the family, or a business trip away, our international travel health insurance means you’ll have the peace of mind to make the most of your time abroad.

With our International Travel Plan, you can:

Have one easy-to-manage policy

Keep track of both your travel and health insurance, without the confusion of multiple policy numbers or documents. This is especially useful if you’re getting cover for other people too - whether that’s your family or your employees.

Make sure you don’t pay twice

This travel plan doesn’t double up on any medical benefits already covered by your global health plan. So, you won’t pay for something you’ve already got cover for.
