The cost of travel insurance will depend on (1) where you are traveling to (coming to the US is more expensive than going anywhere else), (2) your age, and usually (3) the length of your trip. Within those parameters, if you are traveling to the US, you can choose an economical fixed plan or a more expensive, but complete comprehensive plan. A fixed plan is a lower cost plan because it only covers a set amount for each medical expense. The downside is that you only know what the insurance company will pay on your behalf; you may owe a little or a lot -- it will all depend on how much, specifically, for each service, you are charged. Someone in their thirties will pay about $40 per month for a fixed plan or $60 for a comprehensive plan if traveling to the US. That same person would only pay $30 for a comprehensive plan to go to Europe.
