Question:

Where can I get emergency medical coverage for international travel?

Answer:

If you want a policy that will evacuate your dog on a private jet, you can probably buy it. Most U.S. insurers offer international coverage, but you can also add it to your existing policy using Worldwide Assistance Services (now Europ Assistance) (800-777-8710). Compare companies on the website Insure My Trip, which offers competing quotes. Be sure to get “travel insurance with assistance,” a 24-hour hotline to call for advice when your foreign doctor suggests a drug or surgery that gives you second thoughts.
