Florida travel insurance
Before you buy travel insurance for your holiday to Florida, there are a few things to think about:
- The cost of your trip – if you have to cancel, it’s important to know that you can get your money back
- How much medical coverage you have – no one wants to think about getting ill or having an accident abroad but, unfortunately, it does happen
- And don’t forget to check the latest travel advice for Florida from the FCDO

Healthcare in Florida
Healthcare in the USA is of a comparable standard to the UK, so repatriation shouldn’t be a huge concern – unless you are unable to continue your trip. The most important thing to be aware of is the extremely high cost of healthcare in the States, and to ensure you have adequate travel insurance to cover any potential medical bills.
If you have a medical emergency whilst in Florida, dial 911 and ask for an ambulance. Be sure to contact your insurance provider as soon as possible; our medical emergency team are available 24-7. Some US hospitals may ask non-US citizens to pay a deposit upon admittance, so make sure you have available funds in case you need to pay out-of-pocket initially.
