International travelers should always travel with some sort of additional travel insurance. This card includes a wide variety of coverage which is helpful in times of emergency. Since accidents and unforeseen medical conditions can happen abroad, it is always best to have a back-up insurance to depend upon.
To qualify for an International Student ID card, you must be age 12 or older and currently enrolled as a full-time degree seeking student at an accredited institution. Continuing education, language school, and non-degree seeking students are not eligible.
To qualify for the IYTC you must submit proof of age showing that you are under 26 years of age.
