Travel insurance policies are generally designed for short term visitors to a country; ensuring that any mishaps can be dealt with easily and quickly so you can continue to enjoy your trip. Of course, purchasing a local health insurance plan can provide more comprehensive coverage, and this can be an option if you’re concerned a travel plan won’t be adequate.
