Overseas Medical Travel Insurance for Brazilians.

Don't let your medical costs bury you.

  • Trusted by:

We’ve seen some pretty hairy accidents and illnesses, from aneurysms to scooter crashes, and at least one shark bite! When the unexpected happens, our 24-hour emergency medical Assistance Teams will support you and your family, so you can focus on getting better.

What Overseas Medical Expenses are covered by travel insurance?

If you’re injured in an accident or suddenly get sick while traveling, you can be covered for emergency medical treatment including:

  • Hospitalisation
  • Day surgery and out-patient treatment
  • Visits to registered medical practitioners
  • Prescribed medicines
  • Ambulances
  • Extra expenses to get you home, if medically necessary

We also have 24-hour English and Portuguese-speaking assistants that can guide you to the nearest hospital, arrange medical transport, set up direct payments to the medical facility, give support to your family and help you navigate local customs.

Coverage may depend on your past medical history, what's happened to you and any other conditions, limits or exclusions of cover as described in your policy.

What’s not covered?

Travel insurance isn’t designed to cover everything. There's no cover for overseas medical expenses resulting from:

  • The use of drugs or alcohol or illegal activities
  • If you've been acting like an idiot
  • Non-emergency treatment that can wait until you return home (it's not health insurance, it's for travel emergencies)
  • Ongoing treatment for pre-existing medical conditions
  • Any medical treatment at home
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Cell phone roaming expenses when you call us (call from a landline and reverse the charges)

This is not a full list of what's covered and what's not covered. It is important that you read and understand your policy before you travel as your coverage is subject to certain limitations and exclusions.

How to get medical assistance.

It’s essential that you get in contact with our assistance teams as soon as possible so that they can support you from the time you fall sick or get injured until the time you're well again.

So that our Emergency Assistance teams can assist you quickly, please be ready with the following:

  • Your policy number
  • A contact number that we can call you on
  • The nature of your problem
  • Your location

Monkey Bite!

While visiting the Monkey Forest in Bali, I was bitten by a monkey and blood was drawn. After returning to our hotel we then visited a local doctor the same evening of the bite. I received my first rabies vaccination and then went to the International SOS office in Bali for an examination. There I received a second rabies shot, and then immunoglobulin shots.
