Vacation Insurance Plans

Travel & Health Insurance Options for Vacations & Holidays

Even the most careful travelers aren't immune to car accidents, natural disasters, or political unrest, and other unforeseen events. Most travelers assume they will be covered by their existing medical insurance plan, but that just isn’t the case. While traditional plans may offer adequate domestic coverage, they are not designed for international travel. Your vacation can transform from delightful to dire if you are unprepared for a medical emergency while away from home.

Our vacation insurance plans are perfect for:

  • International vacationers and travelers
  • Cruises
  • Safaris & guided tours

Patriot International® provides coverage for U.S. citizens traveling outside the U.S., with coverage for brief returns to the United States. Patriot America® provides coverage for non-U.S. citizens traveling outside their home country. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What country do I select as my primary destination if I'm visiting several countries?

If you're planning a trip with multiple destinations, such as a vacation to Europe, you'll want to select the country that you plan on spending the most time in. Your travel medical insurance will cover you for the entirety of your trip and in countries outside of your own.

Do I get my money back if I cancel my trip?

To be eligible for trip cancellation reimbursement, you must cancel your trip due to one of the reasons covered in your policy. Depending on your choice of policy, qualified reasons could be limited to weather and family emergencies or illnesses, while others allow you to cancel your trip for any reason.

Does my credit card or domestic medical insurance policy cover my travel expenses?

Your credit card or domestic insurance may cover you in some instances, but few plans are as comprehensive as travel insurance. It is best to check all of your existing insurance policies before traveling abroad so that you're aware of how you're covered. 

Am I getting the best deal on these plans?

Insurance prices are regulated by the government - you won't find a better price on IMG insurance plans anywhere else.  

How long does it take to process my application and receive my ID card and other documents?

If you are applying for coverage under the Patriot series of plans, IMG will process your application and send your ID card and other documents within one business day. If you are applying for coverage under the Global or Group series, IMG will process your application within three to four business days following the receipt of all required information, and your materials will be forwarded the same day coverage is approved. Every attempt will be made to process your application timely. The specific time frame depends largely on the type of coverage for which you are applying.
