My parents had no idea travel insurance was a thing when we visited the US in back ’94. We were lucky enough to have nothing bad happen to either of us. Many people nowdays don’t have the excuse of not knowing about it, yet they choose not to get insured for travel.

Thats because many of them often consider insurance to be a total rip off and a complete waste of time. More often than not, those same people that think that way have been fortunate enough to never actually have to claim on any form of insurance.

Insurance may seem like an unnecessary expense, but when things go wrong, it can literally be a lifeline in a whole variety of different circumstances. Take travel insurance for example: When travelling abroad, you’re going someplace new, and who knows what might be around the corner. Travel insurance is there to offer you peace of mind, and protection when you need it.

The United States of America is one of the most visited countries on the planet, and if you’re thinking of heading there, one of the first things you should do is find the best travel insurance provider that you possibly can.

That’s because, God forbid something bad should happen, medical bills could run in the hundreds of thousnds. You DON’T want that. Luckily, we’ve compiled this handy list looking at some of the best providers in the industry today.

Here are the se7en best travel insurance providers for visiting the USA.


Amex Assurance

The first travel insurance provider on our list today is a company known as Amex Assurance.

Amex Assurance are one of the most efficient travel insurance providers you will ever encounter. They have a near-perfect track record and customer reviews and feedback is almost always positive.

We say almost always because you can’t please everybody, and believe it or not, but people have actually been so ridiculous as to attempt to claim on their insurance when the weather was bad, or when uncle Darren drank ten too many sambucas and twisted his ankle whilst trespassing on private property.

Amex provide all manner of protection for people looking to visit the States and you don’t even have to be a cardmember in order to qualify for the coverage that they offer.
