3 tips on deciding how much medical cover is required

  1. The best advice is to read your policy very carefully, especially relating to the amount of medical cover it offers and purchase as much cover as you can afford.
  2. It is advisable to read the exclusions of your policy carefully to make sure you are covered for the activities you intend to take part in whilst on holiday. We would not recommend that you take out a travel insurance policy where the medical cover is less than R3 000 000 as bare minimum.
  3. The basic rule is that you get what you pay for and therefore, the more medical cover you can afford to buy, the safer it is for you in the event that you need medical treatment.
