Specificities of young expats insurances
Find here after a list of criteria, which show main differences between young and elder expatriates. These criteria define their profile, and probably needs for medical insurances.
Their age, of course!
This criteria corresponds for insurers to a decrease of premiums (lower risk) because young people are supposed to be in good state of health and less sick than older ones. This criteria also corresponds for insurers to a potential increase of premiums (higher risk) because of accidents (young expats are more subject to accidents because of their specific way to experience the country and life)
Working holidays, studies, Au Pair …
Certain countries of expatriation welcome a lot of young expatriates every years,
- Working Holidays Visa: Canada, Australia, Argentina, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Brazil, …,
- Summer camps or sessions: United Kingdom, Ireland, the USA, Germany …
- Au Pair
In these countries, the level of hospitals and/or medical practionners is good. And most of the time, it is possible to be hospitalized locally when required.
Lenth of stay
Also, the length of stay for young expatriates is often between 12 and 24 months, but it can easily vary.
This is probably the most important criteria for young expatriates who have most of the time a limited bugdet. Therefore, young expatriates are often motivated to buy a low premium coverage

Please share experiences and information with other young expats on forums before subscribing to low premium packs. Because it is not that easy to propose high quality level services and low premiums at the same time…
