We strongly recommend that you take out comprehensive travel insurance that will cover any overseas medical costs, before leaving on your trip. When organising your insurance make sure it will cover you for the whole time you plan to be away and check what circumstances and activities are not included in your policy. For example, if you plan to hike, do adventure activities or ride motorcycles or bicycles while overseas, you should confirm that your policy will cover you if you have an accident while doing one of these activities.
