Travel Insurance for Medical and Trip Cancelation

Traveling can mean encountering the unexpected, from small inconveniences to truly serious emergencies.  Language Link has teamed up with Travelex to offer a wide range of coverage and 24/7 travel assistance to meet the challenges of today’s travel and help you enjoy a worry-free trip. Even if you have medical coverage in the U.S., almost no policies will cover medical expenses when you are out of the country.  This includes Medicare.  In case you have to cancel your trip for whatever reason, if you have trip insurance, you can be reimbursed for airfare and all prepaid costs.

We have been sending people to study abroad for over twenty five years.  We have experience with helping both the student and Travelex expedite the claim. It costs no extra to use us as a contact point.  We are based out of the US, so we are readily available for you and Travelex in the case of any claims. We want you to have a safe, hassle-free, and pleasant trip!

Travelex can be reached directly at (800) 228-9792 and mention our locator number of 13-1069 (you use this number as a record in case you need to file a claim); or you can fill the form out on their website.

95% of our clients will only need the Travel Basic plan.  It is a general cost effective plan that covers your basic needs and is cost effective.  If you are staying longer than 30 days you will need the Travel Select plan.  You have to register for this on-line or by telephone.

When a medical emergency happens far away from home and proper medical facilities, you want to ensure you receive adequate medical care and emergency transportation for you if needed to the nearest facility or back home. Many plans also include pre-existing condition coverage.

Travelex trip cancellation/interruption benefits protect against employment termination, layoffs, transfers, mergers and acquisitions, allowing you to recover your trip investment if the unthinkable should happen.
