International tourists visiting Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico attracts over 3.5 million tourists annually. Many of the tourists are from the mainland United States and US nationals do not need a passport to visit Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico also attracts many international tourists from England, France, Germany, Spain, Canada, Brazil, Mexico and Asian countries. The large number of international tourists visiting Puerto Rico is not surprising given that the country is home to many amazing natural wonders as well as cultural and historical buildings, theatre, concerts and sporting activity.

International tourists also find it easy to visit Puerto Rico thanks to the many direct flights from US cities like Miami, Houston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Los Angeles and New York. There are direct flights from Europe and Latin America also, such as from Madrid, Frankfurt and Bogota.

International travel insurance for Puerto Ricans visiting mainland USA

Most residents of Puerto Rico are US citizens, and as US citizens traveling to the US, the available travel insurance options are extremely limited.
US citizens and US residents should also consider buying trip insurance especially if they are traveling outside their home state. These trip insurance plans are designed for US vacationers with coverage for trip interruption, taking care of children, pets, and travel companions while traveling. They provide peace of mind while holidaying within the US.
These plans insure you in three ways:
  1. Cost of your trip.
  2. Unexpected medical expenses while on the trip.
  3. Loss or damage to your possessions.
The policies available for use by US citizens or US residents for trips within the US are:
  1. Round Trip Series offered by SevenCorners.
  2. iTravel Series offered by International Medical Group (IMG).
The Round Trip Series by Seven Corners is a three-tiered series of plans with good, better, best plan with Round Trip Economy, Round Trip Choice, and Round Trip Elite. There is an additional cost for the number of days which exceed 30 days, but you can have a trip last up to 90 days. There is also the optional coverage for loss of ski days and equipment and lost golf rounds and rental. Note that insuring a trip for $0 to $500 gives the same, lowest rate available.

The iTravel Series offered by IMG is also a three-tiered series of plans: Travel Lite, Travel SE, and Travel LX. The Travel SE has a nice benefit that children under 10 are "free" with a paying adult which can make it very affordable for family travel. Note that insuring a trip for $0 to $499 gives the same, lowest rate available for the plans.
