You never know when an accident or emergency will occur and it could happen while you are traveling. If you are traveling outside of your home country to the Maldives then your health insurance may not cover you. It’s important that you ensure your safety when traveling so you may want to consider traveler’s insurance. Depending on where you buy your airfare you may be able to buy your travel health insurance at the same time.
In the Maldives, there are not many hospitals and most islands do not have trauma units at the local hospitals. As a result, if an emergency arises you may not be able to receive the level of care you deserve. Most traveler’s insurance will cover emergency medical evacuation should you need it. When considering a policy make sure that if you need emergency medical evacuation you will receive it.
Overall, the Maldives is a very safe travel destination. However, should you be in a severe accident you want to know that you will have the health insurance you need to get you the health care you need.
