Insurance Advice on Travel Abroad to See The 2022 World Cup
Does your medical insurance benefits here in the United States cover you for international travel? If not, Insurance Consultants International thinks it would be wise to invest in travel insurance that will give you the freedom to seek treatment of your choice, either doctors or hospitals and to increase your expenses coverage. Travel health insurance plans often also include things like trip cancellation, travel delay and baggage delay benefits, so it seems like a very easy decision to make. The important thing is to decide, now. But you don’t have to do it alone!
The 2022 World Cup will be the first tournament not to take place in the summer months and will instead be held during the winter – November & December-to remain in- for Qatar’s cooler temperatures. These are high travel alert months in addition to being the holy days and holiday months for many.
In addition, drinking in public in Qatar is a big ‘no–no;’ in fact it is illegal, but their government has stated that alcohol consumption will be allowed in hotels and other “designated areas” such as fan parks. To say that soccer fans are ‘fond of drinking’ is an understatement!! This should be an interesting insurance situation as well.
Which brings us to security: Hosting the 2022 World Cup in a small middle eastern country will pose security risks since there will be thousands of visitors in a relatively confined area. Qatar is a Muslim nation, so there are going to be a lot of cultural differences between visitors and residents. Politics and sports don’t need to mix, but unfortunately there’s no denying that the 21st century has seen some horrific attacks across the world, and it’s something to keep in mind.
Travel Insurance for Fans Traveling to World Cup Soccer with Insurance Consultants International
If you are planning an international trip, you should consider getting travel insurance to cover yourself against accidents or illness while you’re abroad. Even if you already have medical insurance it may not cover you when traveling outside the United States, or that coverage may not be enough.
The U.S. State Dept. recommends that Americans headed overseas for events purchase insurance because Medicare and most U.S. health plans do not include coverage outside the U.S. Your primary international travel insurance need is for emergency medical expense, and emergency medical evacuation.
