True Claims Stories
I had a headache that for several days was becoming worse and worse. I had waves of chills and heat, and was extremely sweaty and hot to the touch. After several hours, including multiple tests and medicines at the hospital, the doctor decided that I likely had a viral infection, possibly Dengue Fever, but that I was well enough to fly and I was discharged with several prescriptions.
PAID USD $306.95 for the costs of medical bills and prescriptions from hospital.
I was out mountain biking when a tree got in my way. On impact, the handle bars of my bike twisted, bluntly jutting into my ribs before I went flying. I was in a lot of pain but there was no external bruising. When I started having muscle spasms near my ribs, I went to a nearby hospital and I was told I had multiple fractures in my ribs.
PAID USD $5,236 for hospital medical care including CAT scan and chest X-ray
I woke up in hospital and had no idea how I wound up there. All I remember is enjoying a beer at a restaurant in the middle of the day, and then I draw a blank. What happened during the next 24 hours between that quiet lager and landing in hospital was a mystery, but I knew for sure I was missing $200 in cash, my credit card and camera. It turned out I had been drugged, kidnapped and robbed.
Reimbursed for the camera and camera case, Credit card issue was resolved with bank.
What country of residence do I choose?
The coverage on the travel insurance plans is different and will depend firstly on your country of residence. To ensure you buy a policy for the correct country of residence, you should consider choosing the country where you have all of the following:

- you have access to long-term medical care (e.g. private health coverage. Not reciprocal health agreements) for ongoing medical treatments or non-urgent treatment not covered under the policy; and
- you want to be repatriated back to this country in case of a medical emergency; and
- you have a permanent residential address.
Please note: there is no cover for any expenses within your country of residence.
