  1. I get the feeling it’s far more common to have travel insurance in place if you live outside the US – maybe for those of us visiting the US, we’re well aware of how fleeced you can be for the simplest of medical emergencies, for example. Also, many UK banks offer current accounts that include family travel insurance (usually 30 days maximum stay in one trip, usually don’t cover you for sky diving etc., but fine for most trips).

    1. I believe the article is talking about insurance that will refund otherwise-nonrefundable ticket costs in the event of certain emergencies, rather than health insurance for international travel.
