What’s the difference between private family health insurance and travel insurance?
The main difference between family health insurance and travel insurance is that the former gives you long-term medical coverage for you and your family abroad. The latter gives you short-term coverage – ideal for holidays or vacations.
Is international family health insurance necessary?
It can be a legal requirement in some countries for foreigners and expats to have international health insurance for their family.
