Travel insurance, sometimes called travel health insurance or travel medical
insurance is available from a number of sources besides from your travel
agent. In fact, it's to your advantage to buy travel insurance online
because you have more companies and products to choose from and you can save
a lot of money.You can purchase travel medical insurance from your travel
agent when you buy your tickets. While that may be convenient, it may not
get you the most value for your money. The travel agency will offer you one
or two travel health insurance policies sold by one company. The products
offered may or may not be appropriate to your circumstances.Also, some basic
travel insurance is often available through credit cards. However, that
insurance may not be adequate for your circumstances, and you could find
yourself under-insured at the worst possible time. For example, your
emergency medical transportation costs may not be covered. How useful is
that?Another way to buy your travel insurance is to search the yellow pages
of your phone book, make lots of phone calls and maybe talk with a lot of
voice messaging systems. If you are fortunate enough to be cable to speak
with an actual human being, you can ask your questions and take copious
notes while the person on the other end of the line patiently outlines for
