Winter Olympics Travel Insurance

Winter Olympics Travel Insurance

The Winter Olympics are on the horizon, and many people will be traveling to China to attend the XXIV Olympic Winter Games. In 2022, the Olympics will be held in the host country of China in Beijing. Beijing is the capital of China, located in the northeastern portion of the country. Beijing most recently hosted the 2008 Summer Olympics and is the first city to host both the Sumer and Winter Olympic Games. Many of the same venues from 2008, like indoor venues and Beijing National Stadium, will be used in 2022 as well.

The opening ceremony will take place on February 4th, 2022, with the closing ceremony taking place on February 20th, 2022. The opening and closing ceremonies are traditionally great displays of the host country's culture, and there will be many things to see and do in China during the games.

It is a good idea to be well prepared for any trip knowing things ahead of time that will be useful during your travels. Obtaining maps and information about the country you are visiting and familiarizing yourself with things such as their transportation system, currency, traditions, and weather conditions during your dates of travel are recommended.

The weather will be ideal for the winter games in Beijing, with the average daily temperature ranging from about 41°F, considered the average high temperature for February, to 22°F, the average low for the month. It will be very cold with an abundance of snow and ice, so dressing in layers is advisable, as is bringing appropriate outerwear.

The currency of China is the renminbi. It is recommended to check the exchange rate just before you depart for current rate information. It is also advised to use ATM debit cards or credit cards for purchases, as this will give you a better exchange rate than travelers checks or cash.

If you are a U.S. citizen, you need a passport and a visa to travel to China. U.S. citizens travelling to Beijing for the Olympics will most likely need to obtain a tourist visa (L Visa). If you are a non-U.S. citizen, you should verify your country's requirements.

You should also be prepared for any injuries or illnesses that could occur during your travels by purchasing a Travel medical insurance policy. Domestic health insurance usually does not provide coverage outside the home country. If benefits are offered, they are usually very limited and do not include situations like medical evacuation, leaving you unprotected if any unforeseen medical issues should arise.

Travel medical insurance can be obtained quickly and easily at very reasonable rates without the need to submit any documentation. If something were to happen during your trip, whether it be catching a cold, food poisoning, or an injury due to an accident—especially in snowy or icy conditions—you would have the peace of mind knowing you have coverage and are protected, taking the worry out of the unexpected. Some plans offer coverage for things such as lost luggage or trip interruption as well.

We also recommend that you purchase travel insurance, which primarily covers pre-paid, nonrefundable expenses. Standard benefits of travel insurance include coverage of trip interruption, emergency medical evacuation / repatriation, lost luggage, travel delays, passport replacement, emergency cash transfers, rental car coverage, ID theft assistance, and more. Be sure to check the specifics of your plan for details.

Being prepared for your trip and knowing what to expect during your travels will certainly make them more enjoyable.
