You volunteered to work on a mission project or help a nonprofit organization for a short trip or limited period of time. Your mission may be to teach people, to build homes or to offer disaster relief assistance. Perhaps your mission is to improve people's health with cleaner water, better sanitation methods or by providing good health care. Or you may be protecting endangered species or caring for animals. Whatever your mission, it is our mission to protect you with short-term international health insurance while you accomplish it.

Illnesses and accidents can happen anywhere so it's important to always be prepared for them. Some people don't realize that their current health policy may not cover them when they travel overseas for a short-term project. Some don't feel the need for evacuation services either. That's why travel health insurance for volunteers abroad is necessary.

Most short-term international health insurance plans designed for this purpose will take you to a place offering good medical care, evacuate you in case of emergency or pay for a family member to fly there to be with you in the hospital. Should an illness or accident occur, not only will you have access to quality health care, you'll avoid spending a lot of money in the process. knowing you have this level of coverage brings peace of mind, which helps you focus on your mission.

Personal travel insurance plans are designed for a few days up to a year or two. For longer stays you may want to consider a Career/Long-Term plan. All of our recommended short-term international travel insurance and international medical plans provide:
