The USA is easing its Coronavirus travel restrictions, reopening to fully vaccinated travellers from the UK in November.
Foreign travellers will be allowed into America for the first time since Donald Trump enforced a travel ban last March, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
That’s welcome news for the more than 5 million UK holidaymakers who head across the pond every year, as well as businesses and those with loved ones in the states.
UK citizens entering the USA will need to be fully-vaccinated against Coronavirus and show proof of a negative test within three days of travelling.
In addition to being vaccinated and providing a test, Travel Insurance will be one of the most important things to arrange before you travel, with the cost of medical treatment in the USA notoriously high.
On average, medical services are twice the costs of care in other developed countries.
If you need medical care in America, bills can run into tens of thousands very quickly, while the total cost could exceed £100,000 if your condition necessitates a long hospital stay.
Even the ambulance to get you to the hospital will start at approx $400 and costs will mount up right away. Take a look at these eye-watering figures:
When it comes to pre-existing medical conditions even medication can be costly – for example you could pay up to $500 for diabetes medication or $350 for medication for cholestoral.
For treatments like breast cancer or surgeries such as a heart bypass, the costs could be as high as $300,000, and an air ambulance could reach a staggering $200,000!
Arranging Travel Insurance could help avoid a potentially life-changing medical bill should something go wrong during your holiday.
Plus, you’ll also be protected for holiday cancellation and loss / theft of baggage and belongings too.
Fortunately, you can arrange Travel Insurance for a holiday to the USA quite quickly, providing the peace of mind you need to get back to planning your trip.
