eStudent Insurance is an online international student health and travel insurance comparison search engine.
What does that actually mean?
In a nutshell, eStudent helps you buy insurance!
Obviously we do a lot more than just than, but in its most simplistic form that is our aim. We want to make the process of buying your health and/or travel insurance coverage as easy as possible and give you the options that are going to fit your needs. Oftentimes the insurance buying process, especially when you are traveling internationally, can be hard but we want to make it as clear and simple as possible.
Who can purchase our plans?
Although we have student in our name, we actually cater to both students and non-students. There are some plan options that are available just to students, so when you do run a comparison make sure you check if you are student or not so that we can filter the plans appropriately.
How does eStudent Insurance Work?
The site has been developed to ask you a few simple questions, and then with our algorithm, we provide you with the best solutions to fit your specific needs. You can then refine those options to find the plan and/or plans that are right for you, and then of course purchase them instantly right online. You can see our previous blog post for a more in depth review of how the system actually works.
Why is eStudent Different?
We want to make the process of researching and purchasing your insurance coverage as easy as possible. That is why we do a few things a little differently – they are:
Clear Wording – For all our products we sell, we have a dedicated section on our site listed “Products”. Here you will find the a section for each plan that we sell, and in there is a page of the benefits of the policy, a page of the plan exclusions and then a page listing out the premiums. We also clearly list the plan brochure and certificate for each plan, so you can see what each plan covers and does not cover!
Service and Support – If you ever have a question about any of our plans, or would like further help in choosing a plan, you can contact us via phone or email and our friendly customer service team will help you understand what options are right for you!
Dedicated to Students – Unlike many of the insurance comparison websites out there, we are dedicated to students. While some of our plans are available to non-students, some of them are exclusively designed for students and can only be purchased by full-time students!

eStudent lets you find, compare and purchase insurance coverage for both students and non-students online. Our site has been developed from the ground up to be easy to use, and easy to purchase coverage right online. We have curated the best insurance plans for students and travelers, so you can search, view and compare all your options in one place.
Searching for Plans
To start the search process, you will need to head over to our homepage, where you will see the search tool front and center of the site:
You will then need to answer a few simple questions:
Are you residing outside the USA currently? Yes or No
What is your country of citizenship?
What is your primary destination?
If you select the USA here, you will then need to select the State in the USA you will be traveling to.
Coverage start date
Coverage end date
Date of Birth
Are you a student? Yes or No
With that data entered into the tool, you will then need to hit “Get Quotes” and you will be taken to our comparison page:
Reviewing Plan Options
Once you have entered all your personal travel/study details into the tool, you will see the results page that will allow you to compare all the different options available to you. Each individual plan will look like this in the results page:
You can also click on the “View Benefit Summary” link on each plan to view further details about the plan:
You then also have the option to compare plans side-by-side, and you do this by selecting the small compare check box on the plans that you want to compare:
and then hitting the big red compare button in the top right!
You will probably want to refine your search results, as this is often the best way to get the options that fit into your specific needs. The filter options appear on the top right:
You have the option to filter by:
Do you need coverage for dependents? Some plans offer coverage and many do not.
Do you need maternity coverage?
Do you have a pre-existing condition that you need coverage for, or does your school require you to have pre-existing condition coverage?
Do you need coverage for any adventure or extreme sports?
Do you need coverage for team sports?
You then have the option to adjust the plan options to filter out those plan options that do not suit your needs. You can filter by:
Medical Maximum Coverage
Hopefully with all the filters and options, you are able to find the plan that fits your needs and once you are ready you can purchase coverage instantly online! We offer real-time confirmation, and you will receive your insurance details in your email.
