Add expat travel insurance to a global health plan

Standard travel insurance covers accidents or mishaps when you’re abroad, usually for a short time. It often includes only a small amount of medical cover1. But if you’re an expat who travels internationally for long periods, regular travel insurance can be inadequate. This is why at AXA you can add travel cover to one of our international health insurance plans**.

You get cover for things like lost luggage and cancellations, as well as medical insurance wherever you travel. 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.

We only offer optional travel cover if you take out one of our global health plans for a minimum of 3 months. We don’t offer travel cover on its own. 

By adding travel cover to your global health 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.

Use the same contact details

If you need to get in touch, we can help with both your travel and health needs. That means you’ve got one less set of details to remember.

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.

Know you’re covered

With cover from lost luggage, to emergency medical treatment, you can get the most out of your time overseas. You can rest assured we’ll be there when you need us.

How does the travel upgrade work?

It’s good to know that travel cover is available as an optional upgrade with our Standard and Comprehensive cover levels, and is already included as part of the Prestige and Prestige Plus plans**.

It includes business travel and holiday cover, for up to 95 days at one time, with a maximum of 183 days in a year.
