America Travel Insurance

America, also known as the Americas, is made up of the continents of both North and South America along with their associated islands, and covers over a quarter of the Earth’s land mass. Situated in the Western Hemisphere, the flatter eastern side holds the vast river basins of the Amazon and Mississippi, while a long chain of mountains known as the American Cordillera dominates the west.

A widely varying climate and ecology can be found, with arctic tundra in the north and tropical rain forests in Central America and the south, and the geological history of volcanoes, tectonic plate collision and erosion brought the two continents together to form the single landmass we know today.

American Culture

Within an already fascinating landmass of geological and geographical interest lies an intriguing and alluring eclectic mix of ethnic groups and their cultures. These groups descended from the indigenous people of the land, the Amerindians, Inuit, and Aleuts, along with Europeans, black African slave descendants, and Asians and their descendants who are often of mixed ethnic ancestry.

With a variety of languages spoken in the different countries, including new languages combining several of the more established languages, America has to be one of the most fascinating places on earth. This is why thousands of backpackers and holidaymakers book their flights every year and head off to find out more about the continents known as the New World.

Medical Treatment Cover

As with any other country, taking out travel insurance prior to visiting America is an essential part of trip preparations. America is considered a reasonably safe destination for visitors, with minimal disease outbreaks and stringent anti-terrorism practises in place since the events of September 11, 2001. However, the unexpected could happen while on holiday, so take out a comprehensive travel insurance policy with a company like DU Insure, who know all about the perils of travelling abroad and will give sound and professional advice.

Getting medical insurance cover is strongly advised before visiting America, as only emergency cases are treated without prior payment. New Zealand does not have a reciprocal health agreement with America and, as there is no state healthcare, treatment may be refused to anyone without insurance or a deposit. Anyone receiving treatment may receive a rather large and unwelcome bill, especially if air ambulance or medical repatriation is involved.

Additional Cover

Many visitors to America love the great outdoors and the huge selection of adventure sports available. Activities include river rafting, sailing, scuba diving, and hunting, and then there are all of the winter sports too. Make sure that your travel insurance policy covers all of the activities on your wish list, or ask your insurance cover to add them to your policy.
America is a vast place and perfect for long trips and exploring. Your travel insurance policy should cover your baggage and valuables, as well as a replacement passport and documentation should you lose your luggage or have it stolen.
