We have Travel Health Insurance through our Group Insurance Plan, but it only pays us back when we get home and submit receipts. Not a big deal for us because we have credit cards to draw emergency cash to pay medical bills.
What if we were traveling without credit cards? If we had an accident or injury we’d be expected to pay the doctor or hospital in cash or not be allowed to leave the country.
Cuban Asistur travel health insurance costs 2.5CUC -3CUC per day and pays the clinics, hospitals and doctors directly.
If we have no insurance, Asistur is a bargain compared to some of the offerings from the Canadian Tour Operators. If we have insurance, Asistur is the way our bills are paid immediately, so we can take advantage of our personal or group coverage to fly us home for treatment and pay the $30,000 bill for the flight.
Something to think about when we’re talking about 17.5CUCs for a week.
Available at a booth at the airports when you arrive.
