About IMG Insurance

IMG is an award-winning global benefits and assistance services company, and has been providing comprehensive range of travel medical, international health, and travel insurance plans since 1990. IMG has several travel health insurance options to meet your needs. 

  • Travel Medical Insurance: This coverage safeguards you against the costs of illness or injury while traveling outside your home country.
  • Travel Insurance: This policy protects you from financial losses due to trip delays, interruptions, or cancellations, and also covers medical expenses incurred while abroad.
  • International Health Insurance: Designed for individuals and families living abroad, this plan offers medical coverage that includes preventive care, routine check-ups, and treatment for illnesses and injuries.

Choosing the Best Plan

Travel medical insurance and travel insurance (also known as travel protection insurance) serve different purposes, which can be confusing. Travel insurance is designed to protect your financial investment in your trip in case of unexpected cancellations or interruptions. IMG’s travel protection plans also include medical benefits, making them an excellent choice if you have significant pre-paid, non-refundable trip expenses that you want to be insured for for your upcoming journey.
