Atlas Travel® Insurance

For international travel, Atlas Travel insurance provides customizable coverage for travelers looking to cover specific needs while abroad.

Perfect for:

  • Travelers wanting to build a custom plan
  • Coverage balance between the essentials and more specific needs

Why do I need travel medical insurance?

International travel can represent financial risk. The benefits of many standard medical insurance policies do not apply beyond the borders of your home country. An Atlas Travel medical insurance plan can be the difference between a trip ruined by unexpected illness or injury, versus a trip with access to quality care and financial help if the unexpected strikes.

Atlas Travel does offer medical expense coverage in your home country in the following situations:

Benefit Period

Atlas Travel will cover eligible medical expenses in the member’s home country for 90 days after the beginning of treatment so long as the related illness or injury began while the certificate was still in effect and treatment began while the member was outside their home country.

Incidental Home Country Coverage

For individuals with the U.S. as home country, for every three month period during which the Member is covered hereunder, medical expenses incurred in the U.S. are covered up to a maximum of 15 days.

For individuals with a home country other than the U.S., for every three month period during which the Member is covered hereunder, medical expenses incurred in the member’s home country are covered up to a maximum of 30 days. Any benefit accrued under a sin­gle 3 month period does not accumulate to another period. Failure of the member to continue his or her international trip or the members return to their home country for the sole purpose of obtaining treatment for an illness or injury that began while traveling shall void any home country coverage provided under the terms of this agreement.


For non-U.S. citizens or residents whose travel does not include the U.S. or U.S. territories, the maximum coverage duration is 365 days. Additionally, coverage may be renewed up to 2 additional coverage periods. Coverage renewal requires satisfaction of a new deductible and coinsurance. Renewals may be filed through the Client Zone.

For all other travelers, the maximum duration is 364 days, and coverage is not renewable.

You may submit a written cancellation request to Tokio Marine HCC – MIS Group prior to the effective date of coverage for a full refund.
