No matter how short an England trip may be, it is important to arrange medical and accident insurance coverage prior to travel. Take note of the following points:
Ensure that the policy provides adequate medical cover

In case of an emergency, does the insurance company pay bills directly, or does the traveler pay and claim reimbursement later?

Check how you can make claims during an emergency. Is an emergency service offered whereby you are provided assistance in a language you can understand?

Does the policy cover sporting activity that may carry an element of risk, such as mountain climbing or skiing?

Can you extend the period of coverage if an England trip is extended unexpectedly?
Always read the fine prints.
