Reno, NV – Any traveler from any part of the globe traveling to any other part of the globe can now obtain health insurance for the duration of their stay through the Internet’s original interactive insurance Web site, QuickQuote.com.

According to QuickQuote President Daniel P. Wager, “Every year millions of people travel outside their home countries for business and pleasure. Often, their local health care plans are not designed to provide coverage while they are out of the country.”

The Travel Health Insurance plans available through QuickQuote (called the Diplomat International Series from the Reliance Insurance Company) can be purchased for a minimum period of 15 days and a maximum period of 12 months. If an injury or illness occurs during that period, and the insured person requires medical or surgical treatment, the insurance generally will pay reasonable and customary charges for hospital stays, physician fees and treatments.

“This plan even covers emergency medical evacuations, if necessary, ” Wager added. “Additional riders can be purchased if the insured is planning any hazardous activities like scuba diving, mountain climbing or surfing, for example.”

For complete details on Travel Health Coverage or a customized quote to obtain this insurance, visit QuickQuote.com or call 877-432-4440 during business hours.
