Konnichiwa…

This just in, Your Insurance Girl will be visiting Japan for the next three weeks.  I will be joining Rotary district 7470 on the Ross Redmond Short Term Youth Exchange.  Myself, two adults and roughly 26 young adults will begin our journey in Osaka, Japan and tour around the island of Shikoku.

While there, we will actually be living with Japanese Rotarians and their families, being completely immersed in their culture.  People keep asking me what I am most excited about, my answer is always THE FOOD.  I know there are so many things to see, though, I can’t tell a lie.  I am a foodie.

Anyway, stay tuned for awesome posts about everything we are doing in Japan.

Travel Medical Insurance

 

Are you planning a vacation over seas this summer?  Still trying to figure out what to pack in that suit case knowing the limits is only 45lbs.  Well here is something very light, very inexpensive, and could save your vacation.  Yup, you guessed it, Travel Medical Insurance.  OK, maybe you didn’t guess that, either way, I am not kidding when I say it could save your vacation.

Imagine, your in Japan and after a few dozen shots of sake you lose your balance and break an arm or fall down and get a concussion.  There is a 99.9% chance that your health insurance (if you have any) is not going to cover you while traveling out of the country.  In most countries they require full payment up front when a foreigner is brought in to a hospital or doctor’s office.   If only you had called your local agent to find out about medical insurance.  That hospital that now wants $1,025,987 yen to fix your arm would have treated you without any question, and for only about $40 out of your pocket had you purchased this priceless coverage.

And no, it doesn’t come with a happy ending…
