**Please note some product benefits are changing with effect from 23rd January 2016.**

Living abroad? Planning the big move overseas?

Help make sure your new experiences are memorable for all the right reasons...

The quality of healthcare varies widely around the world and, unfortunately, the care you receive in your new country may not be of the same standard you were used to back home. Plus, as a foreign national, it is unlikely that you or your family will be entitled to free or subsidised healthcare.

What is expatriate health insurance?

Expatriate insurance is designed to protect the health (and wallets!) of those who are living and working abroad. Cover is tailored to give you and your family access to the best care and treatment available, wherever you are in the world.
