Travel & Health Insurance

Travel Insurance
Travel insurance can provide you with the best coverage for medical expenses, trip cancellation/interruption, baggage damage, medical evacuation, and much more. Andavo Meetings & Incentives recommends using Travelex Insurance Services for your trip insurance needs. For more information or to obtain a quote please visit the Travelex Insurance Services website by clicking here.

Health Insurance 
As you prepare for your upcoming competition abroad, please consider the added protection that international insurance can provide. Your domestic health insurance may not offer adequate travel protection during an emergency and benefits can be limited. Travelers are often left with the burden of making their own arrangements and paying costly out-of-pocket medical expenses. 

MEDEX, a partner of the USOC and USA Triathlon, offers Travmed Abroad to take care of these problems and other travel, medical and security related issues. The cost to our athletes is at a discounted rate of $3.25/day. TravMed will locate nearest providers, hospitals, ER, arrange for medical evacuations, translation services and much more. Illness and injuries, including sport injuries, are also included in the coverage.

We highly encourage all of our athletes to take advantage of this offer. You may get coverage for yourself as well as family and friends traveling abroad. Please review the link below if you would like additional information.
