we buy our travel insurance through Medex and the policy is Travmed Global. My husband, who is also South African, uses this when we leave the states or SA. It's very cheap. we have other insurance in the states, but we buy this policy whenever we leave. he just can't use it in SA b/c that's where his passport is held. the longest policy is 26 weeks. you can then buy another policy when that one runs out. this is catastrophic insurance, not day to day.
