Winter Norovirus And Flu Derails International Travelers

MOBILE, Ala., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- This winter has been an especially virulent flu season. In New York State, the Governor declared a public health emergency, as there were 15,000 cases of flu last month. In the previous year's entire flu season, there were only 4400 cases in the same region. Boston received reports of 700 cases of flu and 4 deaths, causing the city to declare a public health emergency.  Australia recently released information about a brand new Norovirus strain, GII.4 Sydney. Norovirus is a highly contagious virus that the Center for Disease Control is currently watching as there have been hundreds of outbreaks throughout the USA and abroad.

For Americans planning to travel abroad, they may be exposed to strains of the flu or other viruses which they may not have an immunity against. The new strain is making people sick in Japan, Western Europe, and other parts of the world. The flu or Norovirus can waylay professional business travelers or derail pleasure vacations all over the world.

Many people choose to travel even while they are sick because they cannot afford to lose their airfare and/or pay re-booking fees. Purchasing travel insurance mitigates the financial risk of becoming sick with flu or Norovirus and being unable to travel. Being ill while traveling in another country is not only unpleasant, but may require trip cancellation, delay or rescheduling. Trawick International, provides international travel insurance coverage that addresses many of the pre and post departure issues.

"When you have an international health issue like flu or Norovirus occurring, it makes sense to cover trips against unexpected illness and/or injuries," Daryl Trawick, President, Trawick International stated. "For only a fraction of the cost of a planned trip, a travel insurance policy can help travelers virtually eliminate unexpected illnesses or injuries from turning into thousands of dollars in unexpected expenses. It's just a smart and responsible thing to do," Trawick concluded.

Trawick International offers Safe Travels International, an international health insurance plan for anyone traveling outside his or her home country. Rates are based on age and plan options which include deductibles from $0, maximum benefits to $1,000,000, trip cancellation and curtailment, extra baggage, hazardous sports and athletics, medical evacuation and repatriation.
