Which is the best type of USA travel insurance policy?

The type you need depends on how often you travel between the UK and the US:

  • Single-trip policies cover you for one trip, for a set time (e.g. 90 days)

  • Annual policies cover you for multiple trips over a period of 12 months

Here’s how to decide if you should get a single-trip or annual travel policy.

Next, determine what protection you want from your travel policy, which might include:

  • Medical insurance: comes as standard with travel insurance and pays out if you’re ill or injured while on holiday. US hospital bills are eye-wateringly high, so consider medical expenses cover as a minimum

  • Cancellation cover: covers the cost of your holiday if you’re forced to cancel it or cut your trip short – for example if you or a family member are seriously ill or injured. Discover more about cancellation cover

  • Personal belongings and baggage: protects your personal possessions from accidental loss, theft or damage while you’re in the USA. Check that the single-item limit is enough to cover expensive items like cameras or jewellery

You can still get a quote through if you have a pre-existing condition, including cancer or severe heart or respiratory complaints. People who have had strokes or are terminally ill can also get a quote.

Some insurers might not cover you if you already have a severe medical disorder or a number of conditions, and others may only offer insurance at a much higher price. If you’re unable to find suitable cover, talk to the Money and Pension Service (MaPS). It has a directory of insurers willing to cover customers with pre-existing medical conditions.

You can contact the Money and Pensions Service (MaPS) through its website or telephone the team on 0800 138 7777.
