We are having trouble determining whether to buy "repatriation" insurance in case my husband or I get sick or injured while visiting Turkey in May. We are 66, athletic, and in good health. We have health insurance here in the US that will cover emergency medical needs anywhere we go, but a prolonged hospital stay, or the need to come back home to the US while still needing medical care, is not included.
Accidents do happen and illness may suddenly appear, no matter where you might be. Does anyone have advice about buying travel insurance that would cover the expense of cutting short one's vacation and flying back home due to a medical problem?
